TABOR CITY, N.C. (WECT) – A Tabor City man has been charged with indecent liberties with a child following an investigation earlier this month.
Following an investigation, the Columbus County Sheriff’s Office says they arrested 30-year-old Zachary James Foose in Shallotte. He was charged with felony indecent liberties with a child. He was given a $25,000 secured bond.
According to the CCSO, they responded to Columbus Regional Healthcare System in reference to a sexual assault on Nov. 8.
“A mother transported her 5-year-old child to the hospital after the child told her that they were sexually assaulted,” states the CCSO in a release. “The mother was awakened by the child crying.”
The CCSO then says that the child then confided in their mother about what happened.
