ONSLOW COUNTY - Deputies have arrested a man accused of committing sex crimes against two children-- just 3 and 6 years old.
According to the Onslow County Sheriff's Office, 67-year-old Arnold Lewis Delamar, of Jacksonville, took the two children --a 6-year-old girl and her 3-year-old sister-- to the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores on May 31.
But on the ride home from the aquarium, Delamar took the two children to an area off Rocky Run Road, east of Jacksonville, where he sexually assaulted both girls, investigators said.
Delamar is a longtime friend of the victims' family, the Sheriff's Office said.
The suspect was arrested Monday and is charged with two counts of first-degree statutory sex offense and two counts of indecent liberties with a child. He was being held under a $200,000 bond.
