— A Fayetteville man faces accusations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl earlier this week.

The teen told deputies that Carlos Jose Vega came into her bedroom late Sunday or early Monday and inappropriately touched her, investigators with the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office said.

Vega, 38, of 6255 Pine St., was charged Tuesday with second-degree sexual offense, statutory rape and taking indecent liberties with a child.

According to a state statute, second-degree forcible sexual offense involves sexual acts, which do not include vaginal intercourse, with a person by force and against the will of the other person or with a person who the perpetrator knows is mentally disabled, mentally incapacitated or physically helpless.

Vega was placed in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $75,000 secured bond. His first court appearance was set for Tuesday afternoon.

    Sadly this is one of the few that get caught. Pedophiles have a nice place for them in prison.

    So many of these pedophile men do not want a woman. They want a child that they can control, rule, bully, and own. They make me sick. Parents, don't trust anyone with your child. My grand daughter is 8 years old and is ONLY allowed to stay with the 2 sets of grandparents. There are no "step" involved in either side. No one else...Zip, Nada, Zero, Period!

    Why is certain family members so trusting to their friends and allow them to roam around their home freely when they know they have teenagers and children in their home? As parents you are supposed to protect your children and teenagers all the times. What is your child thinking of you and your friends? You should really ask them. Don't be surprised when they respond with an answer you don't want to hear. Truth will prevail.
