A man and woman have been arrested for allegedly raping a 5-year-old girl using a power tool.

Saria Galvan, 24, and Andrew Giboney, 26, were arrested in connection with the heinous crime that took place in Arkansas.

The Logan County Sheriff's Office received a report about the alleged rape in south Logan County last month. Investigators learned that the child sustained injuries at the hands of Galvan and Giboney, ABC-affiliated KATV reported.

Galvan was from Sallisaw, Oklahoma, and Giboney from Booneville, Arkansas. They fled to Oklahoma right after the incident took place, officers said.

"It is alleged that the suspects held down a five-year-old female victim and forcibly inserted the end of a power tool into her vagina," the sheriff's office reportedly said. "This caused injury to the victim."

During the investigation, officers found evidence to support the allegations against Galvan and Giboney and pressed charges against them.

"The victim was interviewed at a child safety center in Fort Smith by a forensic interviewer who is specifically trained to interview children," the Logan County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Tuesday. "The center also provides services for the collection of evidence from the victim and a nurse at the center collected evidence. Evidence was also collected where the alleged rape occurred as well. Our Criminal Investigation Division is working the case."

Galvan and Giboney were eventually tracked down and taken into custody on criminal charges.

"Since the suspects fled to Oklahoma, our investigators worked with our Prosecuting Attorney's Office and we obtained a warrant quickly to get the suspects back to Arkansas," the sheriff's office added. "The suspects were located in Oklahoma and returned to Arkansas and placed in the Logan County Detention Center."

The man and woman were both charged with rape, a class Y felony, according to KNWA.

Galvan is being held at the Franklin County Detention Center on a bond of $100,000. The sheriff's office said Giboney is at a Logan County facility on a $100,000 bond. Officials did not specify the relationship between the accused.

"Our prayers are with the victim and family," the sheriff's office added.
