— A former teacher's assistant at East Cary Middle School was arrested on Wednesday on charges that he took indecent liberties with a child. 

Mark Jay Fox, 62, of 101 Marshburg Lane, is accused of inappropriately touching a juvenile in a residential setting on Jan. 7, Cary Police Capt. Michael Williams said.

The alleged victim is a girl under age 16 who has no connection to East Cary Middle, police said.

The investigation is ongoing. 

Fox was suspended with pay before he resigned Wednesday evening, Wake County schools spokesman Michael Evans said. He was hired in fall 2009 as a teacher's assistant at East Cary Middle.
