A Rowan County man who was on the Sheriff’s Most Wanted list was arrested by Winston-Salem Police, authorities said.

Perry Quentin Simmons, 52, was on the list for being a registered sex offender who had not notified authorities of an address change. He was arrested by Winston-Salem authorities March 17 for indecent exposure. He remains in the Forsyth County Detention Center under a $10,500 secured bond.

Rowan authorities have been looking for Simmons since January after he left the address where he was registered, a statement said.

Winston-Salem Police discovered Simmons had a warrant for his arrest for Rowan County and served those warrants. He will be returned to Rowan County to face charges.

He was originally convicted in 1994 of second-degree sex offense and attempted second-degree rape. He’s also been convicted of assault on a female, assault on an officer, indecent exposure, resisting arrest, child abuse, breaking and entering and larceny.
