UNION COUNTY, NC (FOX 46) — A Union County man is in jail Thursday afternoon charged with committing sex crimes against multiple people, authorities say. 

Felipe Carrera Santiago, A.K.A. Felipe Santiago Cruz, 36, is charged with second-degree sex offense and attempted second-degree sex offense for alleged crimes against two separate victims, including one who is a minor. 

Union County Sheriff’s Deputies are continuing to investigate this matter.

DHS has filed an Immigration Detainer and Santiago will remain in custody pending disposition of the Union County charges.
