GARNER — A Wake County man was due to appear in Wake County court Monday on a charge that he engaged in a sexual act with girl shortly before her 13th birthday last summer.
Nicholas Ray Price was arrested Friday at his home at 3217 Auburn Estates Road in unincorporated Wake County near Garner.
Wake County sheriff’s deputies said in an arrest warrant that the incident happened during July, and the girl turned 13 early that month.
Price was accused of first-degree sexual offense with a child, on the ground that the child was less than 13 years old, the warrant said.
Price was being held in lieu of $500,000 bail at the Wake County Detention Center.
