A registered sex offender has been arrested for being at a Greenville elementary school.

Michael Atkinson has been charged with being a sex offender with a child on premises.

Pitt County deputies say it happened last Monday at Sadie Saulter School when a witness took a picture of Atkinson at the school. That witness gave the photo to a school resource officer who contacted deputies.

Atkinston admitted to being on school property with a friend who was picking up her grandson, according to a news release.

The 46-year-old man has been on the registry since 2003 after a conviction for taking indecent liberties with a minor.
