Man arrested on 2009 indecent liberties charge

Posted February 2, 2011

— Chapel Hill police on Tuesday arrested a man wanted on a nearly two-year-old arrest warrant for felony indecent liberties with a minor.

Investigators had named Carlton Dean Hilliard, 49, as a suspect in a 2009 case in which a 12-year-old girl was allegedly fondled in her home. At the time, Hilliard lived in Chapel Hill and was in a relationship with the victim's mother, police said.

Hilliard had since moved to 24915 N.C. Highway 561 in Enfield and gotten work as a janitor, police said. Chapel Hill officers arrested him on Pritchard Avenue Extension, at Umstead Drive, shortly before midnight Tuesday.

He was placed in the Orange County jail under a $15,000 secured bond.

    Why do these women bring these creeps around their adolescent daughters? I have divorced friends whose high school daughters have complained on more than one occasion of being "hit on" by mom's new boyfriend.

    Do these guys seek out women with young daughters on purpose???
