Man charged with molesting child
Authorities say a Salisbury man molested an 11-year-old girl.
Forty-year-old Salvatore Cerbone, Jr., of 3070 Airport Road, faces a felony charge of taking indecent liberties with a child. He is also charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
The child’s mother contacted authorities Jan. 2. Cerbone was arrested Thursday.
A Rowan County Sheriff’s Office report indicated the incident happened at Cerbone’s home.
The mother of the girl was in a relationship with Cerbone at the time of the alleged incident, authorities say.
During a search of the home, authorities found the marijuana and drug paraphernalia, the report said. Cerbone's bond was set at $8,000.
