— A Florida man wanted on charges that he sexually abused two young girls has been arrested by the Wake County Sheriff's Office, according to warrants.

Johnny Lee Casey, 35, is wanted in Florida's Marion County on two charges of lewd or lascivious battery of a child at least 12 years old but younger than 16 years old. He is being held without bond in the Wake County Sheriff's Office.

In July 2009, the aunt of a victim reported the abuse to authorities, according to an affidavit. The victim told police that Casey raped her and committed other sexual abuse between November 2007 and May 2009. She was 12 when the abuse started, the affidavit says.

Another girl also told her that Casey had raped her 10 to 11 times, beginning in 1999 when she was 13 years old, according to the affidavit.
