The hunt for a child predator continues after a 5-year-old was kidnapped and raped in Broken Arrow. The neighbors of the girl are in shock. News On 6 Anchor Latoya Silmon reports Broken Arrow Police say that the suspect dumped the little girl off in a rural neighborhood Thursday. The people who found the girl say they're haunted by what they saw.

"I didn't want to cry in front of the girl and all, but it's hard to hold the tears back," says neighbor Billy Graham.

And the anger builds up every time Billy Graham thinks about what happened to one little defenseless girl.

"I want to get my hands on the person who did this," Billy Graham says.

That neighbor says it was just around 6 p.m. when he heard a car back out of his driveway very fast. Then he says his fellow neighbor found a little girl at his doorstep crying.

"My neighbor Jimmy comes over and said Bill I need you now!" recalls Billy Graham.

"I see her standing right here, standing right there and she cried real loud," says Jimmy Vang as he points to the exact place.

"She didn't have any clothes on at all and it was very obvious what happened," says Billy Graham.

"She's naked. No clothes. Like bleeding. She's bleeding on her private parts," remembers Jimmy Vang.

Jimmy Vang said they tried to calm the victim and he gave her one of his daughter’s T-shirts while Graham's wife called 911.

Police say before her attack, the victim was playing in her parent's front yard just eight miles away near 500 East Galveston.

"Stranger abductions are not very common and they are very difficult to investigate, especially when you don't have many leads," says Major Mark Irwin of the Broken Arrow Police Department.

Jimmy Vang, a father of five, says he won't rest easy until the person responsible is off the streets.

"Well, I'll tell you what, it made me think what kind of animal he is? Why did he do that to a 5-year-old? What did the girl do to you? Right? Why did you do that to the girl? She don't know nothing! Just 5-years-old! She's innocent! She's a baby," says Jimmy Vang.
