Deputies said they have now charged a man in connection with a sex offense that happened more than eight months ago.
The Pitt County Sheriff's Office said 53-year-old Clarence Spivey was arrested Wednesday.
The Grifton man is accused of second-degree sex offense against a 60-year-old woman, who deputies say was injured during the incident.
Investigators said the victim reported the encounter on Saturday.
Spivey's bond was set at $100,000.
His next court date is scheduled for December 19th, according to online court calendars.
