A Salisbury man was arrested after a 15-year-old girl reported she had been sexually assaulted to the Department of Social Services in Cabarrus County, according Rowan County deputies.

Robert Neal Aldridge, 45, has been charged with taking indecent liberties with a child and a statutory sex offense.

Deputies said the incident happened at Aldridge’s home in March, and that the girl was a friend of his daughter.

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office started investigating on May 30 after being notified by Cabarrus County that the crimes happened during an interview with the girl.

Aldridge was taken into custody Wednesday and appeared in court Thursday. He was taken to the Rowan County Jail under a $30,000 bond.
