RALEIGH — Law enforcement authorities in Wake County on Wednesday made their third arrest in two days of men charged with committing sexual offenses with children.
The latest arrest was of 36-year-old Jeffrey Luther Santos of 1513 Falls Church Road in Raleigh.
An arrest warrant obtained by Raleigh police cited one count of first-degree rape of a child and first-degree sexual offense with a child and alleged that it happened between Feb. 18, 2007, and Dec. 31, 2009.
In accusing Santos, the warrant charges that he did carnally know and abuse a child under 13 years old.
Santos told police he is a chef at a Kanki Japanese restaurant.
They arrested him at the Wake County Detention Center, where he was being held after an arrest Friday on charges of violating a domestic protection order and leaving the scene of a property damage accident. His total bond is now $510,000.
Tuesday, Wake County sheriffs investigators arrested Ronald Alan Olson on charges of first-degree sexual offense with a child on three occasions this year. Olson, whose resignation from a sixth-grade language arts teaching post at Wendell Middle School took effect Thursday, was told by a district court judge that she would not reduce his $600,000 bond, and he also is being held at the detention center.
About two hours after Olsons afternoon arrest Tuesday, Knightdale police arrested Roderick Dean Harris, 33, on a charge of sexual offense with a girl under 13. They arrested him at his home at 210 Serotina Lane, an arrest report shows.
Harris is being held at the detention center on a $1 million bond.
Authorities said there was no connection between the two Tuesday arrests.
