Man Charged With Sexually Assaulting Child

A Johnston County man was jailed Thursday afternoon under a $250,000 bond after his arrest on sexual assault charges involving a minor.

Last Sunday, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said they received a report of a sexual assault involving a 15 year-old female.  The alleged incident occurred that same day.

Authorities said 23 year-old Timothy James Lindgren of Bucking Saddle Way, Willow Spring was identified as a suspect. Lindgren declined to answer any questions about the allegations, deputies said. |

Lingdren was taken into custody on Thursday and charged with two felony offenses: statutory sex offense with a child and taking indecent liberties with a child.

Additional details were not disclosed because the victim is a juvenile.
