A former teacher at Faith Christian Academy has been charged with sexually assaulting two young girls while they were students at the school in the mid-1990’s.
Police said they received a report in June 2020 of an alleged sexual assault that occurred years ago while the victim was attending Faith Christian Academy at 1200 W. Grantham Street in Goldsboro. At the time of the alleged incident, the victim was a juvenile and the alleged offender was a teacher at the school.
During the course of the criminal investigation another victim was discovered and identified. Like the first victim, the second victim was a juvenile at the time of the incident. The additional victim alleged being sexually assaulted as well. During the investigation, a suspect was developed and identified as 51 year-old Anthony Warren Riley of Goldsboro.
Warrants were obtained on Aug. 6 for four counts of indecent liberties with a child concerning these incidents. On Aug. 7, Riley turned himself in to the Wayne County Magistrate’s Office where he was served with the outstanding warrants for arrest. He was given a $50,000 unsecured bond by the Magistrate. He has a first appearance scheduled for Aug. 10 in Wayne County District Court.
Both victims were approximately 11 years-old at the time of these alleged incidents. They are both now adults.
