HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS: A man who was reportedly accused of repeatedly raping a 12-year-old girl over several years was arrested on Friday, October 4, afternoon on a felony warrant based on allegations made by the girl's mother.

Shortly after 3 pm on Friday, 37-year-old Tony Kiah Caver of Hot Springs was taken into custody at his residence before being charged with rape of a minor, which is punishable by up to life in prison.

He was being held without bond and was scheduled to appear in Garland County District Court on Monday, October 7, according to an Arkansas Democrat-Gazette report.

On September 30, the girl's mother reported the rape of her daughter to the Hot Springs Police Department, saying she found a text message on her daughter's phone sent to another friend that alluded to her being raped.

According to the probable cause affidavit, when the mother confronted her daughter about the text, she revealed to him that Caver had been raping her at his residence for the longest time.

During a round of questioning at the Cooper Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center the following day, the girl reportedly revealed Caver had, in fact, been raping her for years — all the way back to when she just "in a car seat".

The 12-year-old also claimed Caver had openly admitted to her that he was a pedophile who "can't help who he likes" and that he "does like kids".

Furthermore, she revealed she had also seen several sexually explicit images and videos of children on Caver's computer. She also claimed that the twisted man had raped her "more than 100 times".

Police executed a search warrant at Caver's residence on October 2 and made contact with him. When officers informed him they were there to investigate allegations of a minor being raped, Caver reportedly mentioned the 12-year-old victim and asked if it was about her.

Caver reportedly allowed authorities to scan his computer. According to officers who were at the scene, he made a statement referring to them saying, "It doesn't matter, they are going to find everything they need anyway."
