A woman was shocked to discover that her former boyfriend had sexually assaulted a toddler.
Scott Sholds, 31, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, was arrested on Wednesday, after he allegedly raped the girl, 2 years old, and recorded the assault with a cellphone.
Police launched an investigation after the former girlfriend of Sholds discovered the video on her cellphone, showing Sholds having sex with the young girl.
The former girlfriend went to police with the video stating that the video was of her former boyfriend. The woman identified the girl as the two-year-old daughter of an acquaintance.
Sholds initially denied being in the video, and told police that he never lived or slept in the house of the victim.
However, police later discovered that Sholds lived with the girl’s family for 9 days.
Sholds was booked into the Washington County Detention Center. He was charged with rape, and with distributing, possession and viewing child pornography, amongst other charges. His bail was set at $100,000 bond.
