Caregiver accused of sexually abusing girls ages 7 and 9

- A Charlotte man has been arrested and charged after sexually assaulting two young girls, police said. 

Ivan Dawkins, 43, is charged with two counts of indecent liberties with a child and statutory sex offense with a child. 

On Sunday at 8:05 p.m. officers were called to the 1400 block of Armory Drive in reference to a sexual assault report. A witness told police that he saw a man sexually assaulting two young girls and immediately called 911. 

Responding CMPD officers located Dawkins and the two little girls, ages 7 and 9, nearby. It was quickly determined that Dawkins was a caregiver of the girls at the time of the assault.

After gathering information on scene, Dawkins was voluntarily transported to CMPD headquarters where he was interviewed and subsequently arrested. 

Dawkins is currently being held at the Mecklenburg County Jail. 

This remains an ongoing, active investigation.
