Police say a 91-year-old woman was the victim of sexual battery and her alleged attacker is now behind bars.
Kinston police have charged Walter McCray with sexual battery, indecent exposure and false imprisonment.
On Wednesday, the elderly woman told police that she was approached by a man on Harding Avenue who placed his hands on her shoulders and wouldn't allow her to stand up. Police say at the time the man was exposing himself.
A neighbor saw what was happening and yelled at the man, who then ran away.
On Thursday, police say they obtained warrants for the 41 year old McCray and he later turned himself in to investigators.
He was placed in jail on a $1,500 secured bond.
McCray has a lengthy criminal record dating back to 1988. His convictions include common law robbery, B&E to vehicles, being a habitual felon and indecent exposure. He was last let out of prison in October 2010 on a charge of resisting an officer.
