There’s sick and then there’s just deplorable but this one might need its own classification. An Arkansas man has been arrested after reportedly raping a 2-year-old baby and recording the heinous act on his cell phone.
According to authorities, 31-year-old Scott Sholds has been charged with felony rape and child pornography charges, including distributing, possession, and viewing, as well as computer exploitation of a child. Police were alerted when Sholds’ ex-girlfriend found the highly disturbing video on her phone. He is currently being held at Washington County Detention Center on $100,000 bond.
The child is reportedly the daughter of a woman who had been living with Sholds.
Police says that Sholds’ ex-girlfriend’s son had taken her phone and given it to Sholds, who is the boy’s father. When she got her phone back, she discovered the video of him raping the young child.
According to reports, the ex-girlfriend identified the man in the video as Sholds and police have matched his voice with the voice in the video. According to police, Sholds had been living with the child’s mother for nine days.
A man claiming to be Sholds’ half-brother, identifying himself as Chris Sholds, wrote on DreaminDeamon.com “I haven’t seen or heard from him since 8 years ago, it’s something I don’t understand, I feel so bad for the child, one thing I don’t understand is, why did the mother leave her child alone with him if he had only lived there nine days, eather way, I hope he gets what’s coming to him, words can’t even describe how I feel, I grew up with him as a kid, he did it to me and my brother, I’m 28 now.”
