Sheriff: Authorities add sex offender to most wanted list
By Shavonne Walker
Rowan authorities are looking for a local man they say is a registered sex offender who did not notify them of his change of address. He’s been added to the most wanted list.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office is looking for Perry Quintin Simmons, 52, whose last known location is the streets of Salisbury.
Officials say after he moved from his registered address without proper notice as to where he would be living. He is 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds.
In 2012, Simmons was convicted after police found him watching people at Lincoln Park pool using binoculars. Simmons was found sitting on a bench in the park area outside a fence, about 75 feet from the pool.
He’s also been convicted of assault on a female, attempted second-degree rape, indecent exposure, larceny, child abuse, assault on a law enforcement officer, breaking and entering, and tampering with a vehicle.
