A California mother was sleeping in her bed when she was suddenly awoken by the sound no parent wants to hear — the screams of her child. Quickly, she jumped out of bed and immediately ran to help her 8-year-old daughter. However, when she opened the door to the little girl’s room, nothing could have prepared her for what she would find on her innocent daughter’s floor.
The mother, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was sleeping when she was abruptly awoken by her 8-year-old daughter’s terrified screams inside her home in Rohnert Park, California. She immediately ran to her room, and when she opened the door, she was absolutely horrified by the terror seen on her daughter’s face and what she found on the floor.
Come to find out, a man, later identified as Noah Holland, had used an unlocked vehicle in the driveway to open the garage door and gain entry to the home. He then snuck up to the little girl’s room. Unfortunately, that’s not all he did. Sadly, he “had taken off his clothes and climbed on top of the girl before she woke up and started screaming,” according to NBC Bay Area. When the child began screaming, he immediately fled the house in the nude, leaving his clothes in a pile right on her floor.
As soon as the mother could, she called the police. When officers arrived, they found evidence with the suspect’s clothes that allowed them to identify him, according to Fox 5. They later located and arrested him. Surprisingly, a second man, Tristan Ford, was spotted walking with Holland who was also arrested. He reportedly had information on Holland’s activity that evening and was placed into custody.
Holland was booked into Sonoma County Jail on multiple felony charges, including lewd and lascivious acts with a child, committing sexual assault while in the commission of a burglary, and violation of probation. In addition, Ford was charged with conspiracy, burglary, and violation of probation. Holland is being held on a $1 million bail.
After taking one glance at his mugshot, it’s immediately clear that this disgusting man shows no remorse for what he did. In fact, he seems proud of his actions as he’s smirking, knowing full well what he had done to this young girl. Too bad for him, he’s just another coward who is about to get everything he deserves for what he did to this child.
Unfortunately, this traumatic experience will undoubtedly haunt this innocent little girl for years to come. However, she’ll one day understand what happened and be grateful that she was able to scream and alert her sleeping mother of what was happening before anything worse occurred.
No parent wants to hear the terrified screams of their child. Unfortunately, this mother will forever be haunted by what she heard, but thankfully, this man is behind bars and no longer walking free in society. There’s no doubt that while he’s serving whatever time he gets, his cellmates will show him exactly what it feels like to be trapped under a man against your will — and I think that smirk will quickly fade from his face, permanently.
Criminals are creative. They will think in ways that most people might not consider and do things like gain entry into a home through an unlocked vehicle’s garage door opener. This is why people need to start taking every precaution and trust no one. It’s better to live on the safe side than to give criminals an opportunity to harm your family. There’s no doubt that this mother has learned her lesson and will undoubtedly be sharing her story to make sure no one else can be preyed upon in the way that she and her daughter were that night.
