Police: Man Raped Toddler, Recorded on Phone

FAYETTEVILLE -- Police say a 31-year-old Fayetteville man raped a two-year-old girl and recorded it on a cell phone.

Scott Sholds was arrested Wednesday on child porn and felony rape charges. His ex-girlfriend told police she discovered the video on a cell phone after getting it back from Shoulds.

Sholds, who was listed as homeless in county jail records, reportedly denied being in the video but police say they also matched the voice on the video to Sholds.  Police say an investigation revealed he had lived in the same home as the girl for at least the last nine days.

He remained Wednesday in the Washington County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
