39-year-old charged with sex crimes

LAURINBURG — A 39-year-old man was arrested on Father’s Day after he entered a residence uninvited and began touching himself in front of a 14-year-old, according to Laurinburg police.

Henry L. Monley is charged with felonious indecent liberties with a child and felonious indecent exposure. According to Laurinburg Assistant Police Chief Cliff Sessoms, Monley’s true address is unknown as he is known to reside temporarily at several locations.

According to Sessoms, Monley entered a home in the Carolina Park area on Sunday and was told to leave, at which point he stepped onto the home’s front porch, exposed himself and began touching himself. When a 14-year-old told him to leave, Monley attempted to pull the boy’s pants down as well.

Monley was booked into the Scotland County jail under a $26,000 bond.
