NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) — A Havelock man has been arrested and is facing multiple charges of sexual offenses against children over the span of five years. The victims range from 2-7 years old, officials said.
Members of the Craven County Sheriff’s Office arrested Victor James Wilcox, 33, of Havelock after a complaint was filed in early July. Wilson was placed in the Craven County Confinement Facility under an $850,000 bond. He was facing charges of indecent liberties with a minor and two counts of a statutory sex offense against a child.
Investigators said on Wednesday that Wilcox admitted to engaging in sexual acts with multiple girls and boys. The Craven County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigative Bureau reports identifying eight children when they were victims of Wilcox.
After that discovery, Wilcox has now been charged with eight felony counts of statutory sex offense with a child and indecent liberties with a child.
Anyone with information regarding Wilcox is encouraged to contact the Craven County Sheriff’s Office at 252 636 6620 or Craven County Communications at 252 633 2357.
