Local News

A Titusville doctor was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly attempted to lure a child into a vehicle.

According to Titusville police, Rhonaldo Silaban, 32, of Syracuse, NY was taken into custody Tuesday following an investigation. He has been charged with luring a child into a motor vehicle, disorderly conduct, harassment, and stalking.

Silaban has been working in the area at the Titusville Area Hospital as a temporary doctor since July 8th. Titusville detective Tim Russell says the case was easy to close due to the help of an eyewitness.

“I credit the one witness that actually helped the female juvenile at the time,” Russell said. “I give the witness all the credit.”

Specific details of the incident have not been released. Silaban was arranged on a $25,000 bond at the Crawford County Correctional Facility, and was released after paying it. He is facing a preliminary hearing in early August.
