BENTONVILLE, AR (KNWA) - A probable cause affidavit from Bentonville Police offers more details in the investigation of a man suspected of raping a 5-year-old girl at school.
According to the report, released Friday, Ali M. Matar, Jr. was alone in the library with the child while she played a computer game on Wednesday, May 14th. During an interview at Children's Advocacy Center, she said he "tickled her" inappropriately and hugged her.
