Police: Convicted sex offender caught watching pool goers

SALISBURY — Police arrested a convicted sex offender after authorities said he was standing near a public pool and watching people with binoculars.
Officers arrested Perry Quintin Simmons, 48, near Lincoln Park Pool on Old Concord Road about 4 p.m., according to a Salisbury Police report.
He had a pair of binoculars in his possession.
Police were called in reference to a suspicious person when lifeguards at the pool noticed a man watching them, the report said.
Simmons was found sitting on a bench in the park area outside the fence, about 75 feet from the pool area.
He was charged with felony obstruction of justice.
The report said Simmons was arrested because of a “violation of his requirements as a registered sex offender.”
Simmons remained in jail Tuesday evening under a $5,000 bond.
The 48-year-old was arrested Jan. 31 after police said they caught him following a woman around Kmart and touching himself.
He was charged with indecent exposure in that incident.
Simmons was released from prison in 2008 after spending more than 14 years behind bars on a rape conviction.
