A woman driving down an alley heard screaming on Friday, authorities said, and saw a man raping a little girl. She then called 911 and followed the suspect for several blocks until police arrived and arrested him.

Sadler had been babysitting the girl, according to her mother.

On Facebook, the child’s mom wrote “My little girl was disrespected in the most worse way ever! A sick m***** f***** decided his obsession with my little girl was gonna be (taken) to another level!" is not naming the woman to protect the identity of her daughter. 

Sadler, the mother added, was “someone my daughter looked at as an uncle.”
