GREENVILLE, N.C. — A probation officer walked in on a North Carolina man raping a 6-year-old on Sunday, according to WITN.

Authorities say the probation officer stumbled upon the shocking scene when he was trying to locate the suspect’s son, who is on probation, at a residence in Greenville.

After knocking on the door of the house and then checking the shed, the probation officer found Martin Vasquez, 47, raping the child, according to police.

Vasquez, who lives on Celtic Court outside of Greenville, is charged with rape of a child and indecent liberties with a child. The warrant says the victim was 6-years-old, and the rape happened on Sunday.

Vasquez’s bond is set at $1 million.
