RAEFORD, N.C. (WNCN) — A Hoke County man is facing child sex charges after an investigation began in May, Hoke County officials said said.

Officials were first notified of a sexual assault involving a female child on May 12, Hoke County Sheriff Hubert A. Peterkin said in an email.

Deputies conducted an investigation and arrested a man who they found in Hampton, Virginia, Peterkin said.

“As a result of the investigation, Henry Louis McNeill was charged with two counts of indecent liberties with a child,” Peterkin said.

McNeill was extradited back to Hoke County and taken before the Hoke County Magistrate, according to Peterkin.

McNeill is being held in the Hoke County Detention Center on  a $15,000 secured bond.
