    here is says he's foreign, the NB paper: New Bern police arrested a 19-year-old New Bern man early Friday morning and charged him with four counts of first-degree sexual offense on a child. Gamaliel Lopez Arias, 19, of 114 Fox Chase Village, is in the Craven County jail with his bond set at $1 million. New Bern Deputy Police Chief Ed Preston said police answered a call at the house at 8:04 p.m. Thursday and continued investigating and arrested Arias at 1:42 a.m. Preston explained the law by saying first-degree sexual offense is charged when a person engages in sexual activity with a victim who is a child under age 13 and the offender is at least 4 years older than the victim is. The law also states that the act is done by force and against the will of the victim. The crime is not rape, but is classified deemed sodomy.
