RICHLANDS, N.C. (WITN) - An Onslow County man is facing numerous charges after deputies say he sexually abused a girl.

Caleb Sydes, of Richlands, was nabbed on Tuesday. He is charged with two counts of statutory sex offense with a child 15 years or younger, indecent liberties, solicit child by computer, and disseminating obscene material to minor under the age of 16.

Back on January 14, Onslow County deputies received a report that a child had been sexually abused by a 24-year-old man.

Their investigation led to Sydes arrest.

Deputies say the two were known to each other and that in addition to sexual abuse, Sydes also sent inappropriate pictures of himself to the girl.

Sydes was jailed on a $207,000 secured bond.
