Woman beats 7-foot-3 sex offender with baseball bat

On the day that fliers announced a registered sex offender had moved into a Puyallup neighborhood, a woman welcomed him with an aluminum baseball bat.

The 7-foot-3 man was beaten so badly, medics transported him to a hospital.

"I kept swingin' and swingin' and swingin," court documents say Tammy Gibson told police, who arrested her in Cottonwood Mobile Home Park.

Gibson has been charged with second-degree assault and felony harassment.

Gibson went to the home where the man, William Baldwin, is living, knocked on the door and asked for him. Then she accused him of molesting her children and beat him with the bat, according to court documents.

Gibson has a criminal history dating back more than a decade.

Baldwin moved to the 1800 block of River Road earlier this month to live with his uncle. Fliers were posted in the neighborhood on Monday.

The fliers detailed his conviction for first-degree child molestation in 1998. According to police, Baldwin was on parole for forcing his 5-year-old neighbor to touch him sexually when he lured another 5-year-old into a backyard doghouse, where he sexually assaulted her.

He is considered a high risk to re-offend.

When police confronted Gibson, she admitted hitting him with a bat but denied that he ever molested her children, court documents say. She is being held on $15,000 bond.

Baldwin, 24, participated in a sex offender treatment program as a juvenile. He is not currently under supervision by the State Department of Corrections.

He is also being treated for a broken arm.

UPDATE: Baldwin was arrested Wednesday for failing to register as a sex offender. The house where he was arrested was not the location he gave authorities after updating his address.
