NAPOLEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Napoleon man is behind bars after being charged with rape and gross sexual imposition.

Those who lived near 57-year-old Daniel Gonzales say they were shocked and disgusted when they heard what happened.

"To hear something like this, it just totally catches you off-guard," said Teresa Ward.

Gonzales has been charged with raping a child under the age of 13, and causing two other children, also under age 13, to engage in sexual contact.

Prosecutor John Hanna says sex crimes are more common than many people may think, but cases like this are especially hard to hear about.

"It's always more difficult, especially when there are children involved," Hanna said. "It's never easy to [work on a case with] any of the sex offenses, because they're always traumatic for the victim."

Knowing the victims were so young hits close to home for Ward.

"I've got grandkids, too," she said. "And to think that somebody would do something to them – I don't know what I would do."

Gonzales waved his preliminary hearing Thursday morning. Hanna says they'll take the case to the grand jury.

"I just can't believe someone would do something like this to kids," Ward said. "Those kids never hurt anybody, and to have to go through something like this, it's not fair."
