RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- The Wake County Sheriff's Office said Friday that it has arrested a Wake County man in connection with committing illegal sex acts against a minor.

Herman Davis, 55, of Raleigh, was charged with three counts of statutory rape of a child, three counts of taking indecent liberties with children, and one count of first-degree statutory sex offense.

The investigation began June 11 when the sheriff's office received a report about an alleged sexual assault on a girl. The Wake County Assistant District Attorney's Office reviewed the details of the investigation and authorized investigators to file multiple sex-crime charges against Davis.
