Teen charged with sexual misconduct on Raleigh’s greenways

From staff reportsJune 24, 2013 

— Police on Monday charged a Wake Forest teen with escalating acts of sexual misconduct involving women walking on Raleigh’s greenway system.

Police charged Brett Edward Gunter Hill, 17, of 2525 Triffle Lane with two counts of sexual battery, one count of assault and battery, and one count of indecent exposure, Raleigh police spokesman Jim Sughrue said Monday.

The incidents stretch back to March and ended this month, police say. All four occurred in Northeast Raleigh near Capital Boulevard, and all took place on or near the city’s greenway system.

The first occurred March 9, when police accused Hill of slapping a woman’s buttocks, Sughrue said. The next incident occurred May 12, when police say Hill exposed himself to a woman.

On June 5, police say, Hill tried to pull a woman’s shorts down. And on June 11, police say, Hill pulled a woman to the ground.

Hill was at a city greenway Sunday when one of the women involved in the earlier incidents saw him and called police.

Hill was released from jail Monday morning after posting a $4,000 bond, a jail spokesman reported.
