CARY, N.C. (WNCN) – A man previously arrested for a child sex offense in Wake County was charged with a similar offense that took place in South Carolina on Thursday, documents show.

David Beam, 70, of Cary, had previously been arrested by Cary police on Oct. 5 for statutory sex offense with a child, according to records. Beam was served on Thursday at the Wake County Detention Center with sex offense charges out of South Carolina.

On Oct. 2, a 10-year-old reported to Simpsonville police that she had been fondled over a 2-year-period. The abuse happened in both Simpsonville, South Carolina and in Cary, according to documents.

A search warrant said Beam put his hands down her pants and fondled her. He also put his hands down her shirt, and took her underwear and made her wear a white camisole without underwear.

Documents say Beam also had nude photos of the 10-year-old girl. She had seen pictures he had secretly stored in a calculator application on his phone. 

Beam is booked in the Wake County Detention Center under a combined $1,100,000 bond.
