WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police say a man is facing charges for sex crimes with a child after they say he was caught molesting a relative.

The call came in around 2:15 p.m. yesterday when police say the child’s father walked in on the man sexually assaulting the 5-year-old at his home in the 3700 block of Carolina Beach Road. Officers say when the father walked into his home around the time of the call, he saw Nolberto Santiago Garcia, 22, standing in front of the child with his pants down.

Police say when officers arrived at the home, they were able to confirm with the child that they were sexually assaulted by Garcia. Investigators say the child was then taken to the hospital, and Garcia was arrested trying to leave the home.

Garcia is charged with first-degree sexual offense of a child and indecent liberties with a child. He is in the New Hanover County Jail under $1,000,000 secured bond. According to jail records, Garcia is expected to make his first appearance in court later today.

    So “bob” what ur saying is that if this guy was back in his birth place its okay to commit this crime there?
    Just so u know the little girl he raped is his niece. She is not an american like u. Regardless of where they are from tthis is not right. A child was raped!
    So I’m just wondering if an American raped her its okay?!

    So I’m thinking that YOU wished you hadn’t posted such an ignorant/stupid, makes no sense post!

    This is just beyond stupid. A child was raped and u worry if he is from here. Many children have been raped, kidnapped, killed, etc by AMERICANS!

    I’m not defending this low life person. He can rot in jail for all I care.
    I just pray for this little girl

    i`m thinking that when you reread your ignorant post you wish you hadn`t posted it.but here goes …we MUST be worried about his immigation staus because he would NOT have been able to commit this crime if our government were doing its job ! and we could prevent this sort of thing from happening again if we sealed our border and deported these criminals !!!!!!!!!!!!!! i don`t know about you but to me ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL and we americans MUST start pressuring our elected officials to stop pandering for votes and start protecting the american people as is written in all of their oaths of office !

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a rediculous question in my life! Nobody is saying anything about it being “OK” to rape anyone! Got that? Now, the point is, if he wasn’t here illegally, that wouldn’t have happend here. If it happened in Mexico, they’d permanently strip his genitals and give him a paper straw to use the bathroom with. They just put them back on the street here in the US…to do it again.

    Now, lay off the bottle for a few days and dry out before you write again!

    Please pray for this precious 5 year old angel.
    She did not deserve to be sexually assaulted by this animal.
    She deserves every right to a beautiful life.
    Please lift her up in prayer to be able to live in a safe home and receive counseling and support to help to begin to heal her wounds.
    Please pray for all the precious children to be protected from evil.

    Is he here legally?

  • Kim W

    I’d be surprised if he is.

    That shouldn’t be here in the first place. That area of Carolina Beach Rd. is a giant trailer park. When the school bus stops there 50 Mexican kids, 2 blacks and one white kid exit to go home back in there.

    A child was molested, possibly raped and all you and others here worry about is if this pig was legal? You are a truly great human beings arent you?

  • Guest2020

    Had that been my child, the man would have trouble trying to leave, if not just carried out in a body bag. People like him deserve the death penalty.
