Man wanted for sex assault turns self in

CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - A man accused of sexually assaulting a teen at a Concord library turned himself in Tuesday.

Larry Herman Barrino, 32, was wanted for a sexual assault that happened at the Concord Branch of the Cabarrus County Public Library System on Union Street North on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Authorities say a library employee called 911 around 1 p.m. to report the incident. Barrino was seen talking with a teenage girl outside the library at around 10 a.m., reports suggest.

The two went into the library shortly before 1 p.m. and were seen walking into the men’s restroom, where the assault took place, according to the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office.

Barrino turned himself in Tuesday and was charged with two counts of statutory sex offense with a child.

Thus far, authorities say there is no indication that Barrino has a criminal background related to violent crimes or sex crimes, or that he previously knew the teen.

“We believe this is an isolated incident,” said Cabarrus County Sheriff Brad Riley.

Barrino was given a $50,000 secured bond and will be transported to the Cabarrus County Detention Center.

Anyone with information pertaining to this case is asked to contact the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office at 704-920-3000.
