The Cary Police Department has charged a 19-year-old with peeping at a young boy and other sexual offenses.

Dalonte Rashad Henry was taken into custody Thursday. ABC11 learned Henry is a senior at Apex High School.

According to arrest warrants obtained by ABC11, Henry took indecent liberties with an 11-year-old boy between January and April of this year.

He also allegedly took indecent liberties with a 9-year-old in February.

A third warrant alleges Henry duplicated child pornography depicting a boy between the ages of 6 and 8 engaged in a sex act.

A fourth warrant alleges he used a cell phone camera to record video of a 12-year-old boy through a window at night.

Henry appeared in a Raleigh courtroom Friday. He told the judge he needs to get out of jail so he can go to class.

"I'm still in school, high school," Henry told the judge.

Cary police said they were called to the Kroger on Maynard Road where Henry worked. The call came from a father of a 9-year-old boy.

"Was in the bathroom and he saw a Kroger employee putting his phone down under the stall and leaving it for a period of time under the stall," a 911 caller revealed.

Henry was charged with molesting that boy and the aforementioned 11-year-old boy. That boy lives downstairs from Henry in a Cary apartment complex, according to a neighbor.

"They confiscated [Henry's] phone and did some, a warrant or something and got a lot of information," said neighbor Maria Trinidad.

Trinidad said she got that information from the mother of the victim. And, she said that mother claims her other son is also a victim.

He is reportedly the victim described in arrest warrants that was filmed through a window at night.

"I'm still really concerned about my younger son, my eight year old," Trinidad explained. "He is the kind of person who goes with the flow sometimes."

Trinidad said she has questioned her youngest son, but is still concerned he could be too scared to tell the truth.

She said she was shocked when she heard the allegations against her neighbor.

"He's grown up with my kids," she said. "I've known him since he was about in fifth or sixth grade."

Trinidad said the allegations against Henry should be a cautionary tale to parents of young children.

"We are deeply disturbed and saddened by these allegations, and the employee in question is no longer employed by Kroger," Kroger said in a statement Friday evening. "Moreover, we are fully supporting law enforcement in their investigation of what occurred as well as conducting our own review. At Kroger, our top priority is to ensure the safety of our customers while they shop in our stores."
