LINCOLNTON, N.C. – A Lincoln County man was arrested on January 13, 2021 on child sexual assault charges.

Detective Kelsey Harrington began an investigation on November 26, 2020 after the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office received information regarding the sexual assault of a child. The victim, who was under the age of 16 years old and known to the offender, was interviewed at the Lincoln County Child Advocacy Center where she disclosed the sexual assaults.

The assaults occurred in October and November of 2020. The suspect, Curtis Wayne Johnson, 34, of Shady Pine Lane, Lincolnton, NC declined to be interviewed by investigators and was arrested at his workplace in Gastonia after warrants were issued.

Johnson was taken before a Lincoln County magistrate where he was charged with two felony counts each of statutory rape and taking indecent liberties with a child. He was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $40,000 secured bond. Johnson had a first appearance in Lincoln County District Court today, January 14, 2021.
