A Lenoir County man is accused of committing a sex crime against a child.

Bullock, of Kinston, was arrested later on Wednesday in Duplin County, where he works, by the Dupllin County Sheriff's Office.

Police have not released any other information on the alleged crime.

Bullock was being held in the Duplin County Jail under a  $100,000 bond and will be transported to Lenoir County, investigators said.
