Corey Deshawn Gaston is wanted in Michigan by the Detroit Police Department and the United States Federal Marshals for rape in the first and second-degree, criminal sexual conduct with a child under age 13, and additional charges of kidnapping, home invasion, and child enticement. 

In 2007, Gaston entered a home through a bedroom window and kidnapped a 10-year-old little girl. 

Gaston put her over his shoulder and ran to a nearby alley where he removed her clothing and raped her. Following the rape, Gaston threatened to hurt the child if she screamed or ran away, even following her back to her home. Gaston went back to the house trying to retrieve evidence that later matched evidence at the scene of the crime.

Gaston is a former Michigan State University hockey player. He is also a truck driver by trade. He is described by family as charismatic and acts very caring toward others. Gaston may gravitate toward someone with little girls, along with sports or other public activities, that enables access to victimize young children.

Gaston was born February 27, 1978, and described as black male, 5' 7" height, approximately 170 lbs, with brown eyes and black hair with dark skin tone. Athletic build. Gaston is balding but he has worn braids and grown his beard in the past. He has scars on right knee and head from staples and described as having a bowlegged walk. Gaston likes to drink Corona Beer with lemon and will not share food or eat after anyone else. He is also described as very computer savvy.

Gaston has been a fugitive since 2008, and may have ties to Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio, and California, but could be anywhere, even Canada or Mexico.

Gaston is considered armed and dangerous.


The US Marshals is offering a $25,000 reward for any information that leads directly to Gaston's arrest.  Anyone with information should email the U.S. Marshals office at or call the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.
