Disgust and shock - that's what many Arlington residents are feeling after hearing that one of their neighbors, 19-year-old Paul Noland, is under arrest for allegedly sexually abusing a boy who is just 4-years-old.

Paul Noland was arrested for allegedly showing a 4-year-old child pornography.

Police say Noland lured the little boy into a pickup truck on 8th Street in Arlington. In the car, police say, Noland showed him pornographic images on his iPad, then began touching the boy.

It all happened on the 3600 block of 8th street while the boy’s parents were outside nearby.

“It's pretty surprising, everyone around here is pretty friendly and looks out for each other,” says Kris Coronado, an Arlington resident.

The incident happened at dusk, just about 8 p.m., last Tuesday. Neighbors in the picturesque neighborhood say they're upset but won't let fear control their behavior.

Police say Noland is currently being held without bond. Police add that Noland lives with his parents in Arlington. A woman who says she is his mother declined an interview.
