A registered sex offender wanted in a sexual assault of a 14-year-old in January was taken into custody Friday, according to the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office.

Michael Anthony Graham, 46, has been charged with statutory rape, indecent liberties with a child, first-degree burglary, failing to register an address change of a sex offender, failing to register a new address of a sex offender, failing to register or report in person, resisting delaying and obstructing law enforcement, and giving fictitious information to law enforcement.
