Bentonville Police say Ali M. Matar Jr., 21, of Lowell, sexually assaulted a five-year-old girl while on RE Baker Elementary school premises. He was working for the school district's Adventure Club Program, according to records.
An investigation was launched when a report was made to the child abuse hotline from the Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division. Matar was arrested Wednesday.
Matar was taken to the Benton County Jail awaiting a bond hearing on one charge of felony rape.
Police say the investigation has revealed no evidence of other victims but anyone with information should call Bentonville Police Department at (479) 271-3170.
