A 66-year-old man faces a rape charge after an officer discovered a small girl performing a sexual act on him inside a vehicle at a North Little Rock parking lot, authorities said.

Sam Holder of North Little Rock was arrested around 9 p.m. Sunday in the 2800 block of River Road, which is in the vicinity of Riverview Park, according to a report.

An officer patrolling the area noticed a lone vehicle, a dark-colored van, in a parking lot. Its windows were “slightly fogged,” authorities noted.

After a flashlight was shined into the van, a small girl was seen inside engaging in a sexual act on Holder, police said. That prompted Holder to “hurry and pull his pants above his waist," the report states.

The girl described Holder as a “family friend” who was “similar to a grandpa.”

Holder remained at the Pulaski County jail as of Monday morning without bail, according to an online inmate roster.

    There is no situation in which a little girl needs to get in a van alone, at night, with a man who is not next of kin. That poor child!

    Like a grandfather to her? I hope not. I would hope her grandfather would not tell her to give him oral sex.

    Scum! I just can't form a thought that allows conduct like that in a human being. This guy needs a rope and a tree.

    Risingsun; scrap the straight razor and use a rusty butter knife.

    Sadly, the authorities need to check to see if the parents weren't getting paid for letting this man have access to their child.
