HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WTVD) — A 36-year-old man is facing sex crime charges after a girl reported his inappropriate behavior to her mother when she returned home from a sleepover at a friend’s house. 

He was arrested Saturday but additional charges were added Sunday when another victim came forward. 

Marcus Delamez Moore, 36, is charged with three counts of indecent liberties and two counts of sexual battery. 

After the first report, Moore was arrested and booked into the Orange County Detention Center under a $50,000 secured bond. At the same time, a magistrate served Moore an order for arrest for failure to appear in court in Durham on unrelated charges. He received a $2,000 secured bond in that case. 

When the investigator spoke with other members of the household who hosted the sleepover, a second victim was identified. She reported “experiencing criminal activity similar to that described by the first victim,” according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. 

He was then charged with an additional count of indecent liberties and an additional count of sexual battery.
