A man accused of sexually assaulting a minor has turned himself in, the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office said.

On February 5, deputies received a report of a statutory sex offense that had occurred in January.

The victim’s mother reported her minor child had been sexually assaulted by an 18-year-old.

Sheriff’s Office Special Victims Unit investigated the allegation and identified the suspect.

Both the victim and suspect were known to each other prior to the incident. 

On Tuesday, a warrant was obtained for Bryce Dawson English of Sneads Ferry.

English turned himself in later that day and was taken before a magistrate and charged with statutory rape of a child 15 years or younger.

English was sent to the Onslow County Detention Center under a $10,000 bond.
