GREENVILLE, N.C. - A Greenville man is under arrest after the Pitt County Sheriff's Office said he sexually assaulted an underage girl.

Michael Poore, 32, of the 1200-block of Davenport Street is being charged with "statutory rape of a 13-, 14- or 15-year-old girl."

The Sheriff's Office reported Poore was visiting family friends in Western Pitt County when a family member discovered Poore sexually assaulting a girl.

Christy Wallace of the Sheriff's Office said Poore fled the house as the family member dialed 911.

Around 5 p.m., Wallace reported deputies located Poore and arrested him.

He's being held at the Pitt County Detention Center under a $1.025 million secured bond.

The Sheriff's Office said Poore had arrest warrants in Mecklenburg, Carteret and Gaston Counties.

In Mecklenburg County, he was charged with "interfering with emergency communications, false imprisonment, communicating threats and assault on a female."

In Carteret and Gaston Counties, Poore was charged with "obtaining property by false pretense."

Monday morning Poore will have his first appearance in front of a judge at the Pitt County Detention Center.
