Selma Police Investigating Man Charged In Wake County With Illegal Sex Acts With A Child

The Wake County Sheriff’s Office has arrested and charged a Wendell man for allegedly committing illegal sex acts with a child.

Deputies have charged Jose Alberto Maya Orozco, age, 42, with three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child. The alleged incidents occurred between July and October of this year.

Wake County investigators were first notified in October after the victim completed a school assignment in which she reportedly disclosed that she had been inappropriately touched by the suspect.

Following the victim’s statement, and through investigative means, Orozco was arrested for the alleged illegal acts.

The Selma Police Department has also been notified that Orozco may have committed similar offenses in their jurisdiction. Selma Police Chief Billy Thomas confirmed his detectives have been in contact with the Wake County Sheriff’s Office and an investigation was underway.
