Man charged with sexually abusing 5-year-old girl

CROUSE, NC (WBTV) -

A Lincoln County man is facing child sex charges after deputies say he sexually assaulted a five-year-old girl.

According to investigators, 31-year-old Neely Marvin Bigham, of Crouse, was charged with two felony counts of First Degree Statutory Sexual Offense.  He was arrested Monday at the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.

Bigham is accused of sexually assaulting a five-year-old girl between December of 2012 and February of 2013.  Deputies say Bigham knew the little girl, but is not a family member.

Deputies say they have been investigating the crime for nearly a month after the little girl's family reported the incidents.

Bigham was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $200,000 secured bond.
