— Police are looking for a suspect in connection with a sexual assault that happened Friday night in a bathroom of a private school in Cary.

Police Capt. Don Hamilton said Monday that the attack happened around 7:30 p.m. at Cary Academy on Harrison Avenue.

The male victim, who is under age 16, told his parents, who reported it to police.

Although Hamilton said the boy is not a student, he would not say why he was at the school.

An arrest warrant has been issued for the suspect.

Hamilton declined to comment on who that is, fearing he or she might flee before being caught.

Cary Academy's headmaster, Mitch McGuigan, said the suspect was a contract employee of the company that cleans the school.

"I am saddened that this alleged incident took place on our campus," McGuigan said in an email statement. "Our concern is for the alleged victim and the family."

    Chattycat, the issue I have with cary is cover-up to protect their reputation. A few years ago, there was a sex crime against a student (s) at CA. No question it happened, teacher admitted it, but cpd decided not to charge the teacher. COVER-UP!!!! That teacher could be teaching your children today, thanks to cpd protecting the town's and school's name! BTW, he is teaching again, but I can rest knowing I did everything to prevent him from teaching again!

    This may good time to note that the Cary Academy facilities are used by several different organizations for meetings in the evenings including cub scouts, etc.

    'Another story of child abuse in Cary??? What is in the water there????' Yeah right, you can't even go for a bike ride or jog a trail without being assaulted by 'youths'. LOL

    Probably the same thing as other towns in the Triangle. Nice try at dissing Cary AGAIN! What is it that you have such a problem with?

    the suspects back on the road to mexico before he gets caught. but now that i think of it, why not turn himself in and let the government deport him for free. Maybe they can put the one that ran over the 12 year old at the stopped school bus on the same plane and get 2 for 1.

    Yes, I believe Fayetteville Technical Community Collage offers a course for fledgling criminals to help them understand how things work concerning a career in the field of professional crime.

    Apparently, aside from a crime being committed, according to the posters here something is not quite right about almost every story here.

    I think it was a meeting. If the person didnt attend school there he should have never been there. How close does he live to the school? How did he get there
