— Durham police were searching Wednesday for a man wanted on sexual assault charges involving a child.

Avis Deshon Trueluck, 34, of Durham, is wanted on charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sexual offense with a child and taking indecent liberties with a child.

Police did not comment on the circumstances that led to the charges.

Anyone with information on Trueluck's whereabouts is asked to call police at 919-560-4440, extension 29340 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash rewards for information leading to arrests in felony cases, and callers never have to identify themselves.

Trueluck was convicted of misdemeanor assault on a female in 2002, according to state Department of Correction records.

    "ncouterbanks69 What a stupid thing to say. Durham has less crime than Raleigh. Try looking at the mug shot section here on WRAL and see how many arrested are from Raleigh vs. Durham. Durham has been voted the #1 City to retire in in the country. Check your facts before you make such stupid, biased and wondering if racist comments."

    Yes if you look at the WAKE COUNTY ARRESTS There are more from Raleigh than Durham! Durham is not in wake county.

    I think the only ignorant people on here are the ones that believe that durham is not a center for violent crime. It is those people who I believe have never been to durham.

    Yup, good, the world still turns, and ignorant goLo'ers still get on here and write how awful Durham is every time a crime is reported in Durham, which is about 1/10th of the crimes reported by WRAL. Never mind that they've never been to Durham and have no idea what they're talking about. If people like them had any sense at all, there never would've been a George Bush, a Newt Gingrich, or a Sarah Palin.

    Aahh the overplayed last excuse for the desparate....the race card. What was said that was racist? Only the truth was spoken. Isn't it funny that excuse can be used even when nothing remotely racist was said. You people make me laugh

    I grew up in N. Raleigh and now live in Durham. I will check my stats on crime. On the crime maps I've seen it showed more crime where I used to live in Raleigh than where I am living now in Durham.
