Father says his daughter was the target of a sex offender

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington man was just hoping for a fun family night out. He says instead his 11-year-old daughter was the target of a sex offender at a Wilmington business.

According to The Boardwalk on Front’s Facebook page, the founders want to create a place for anyone and everyone to hang out, party, and play the full arcade. That is exactly what a man, who asked not to be identified to protect his family, expected last Friday evening when he brought his family to The Boardwalk on Front Downtown. He says an employee approached his daughter while she was playing in the arcade. He asked if he could be her friend on Facebook. That man, Sean Joseph Paez, is a registered sex offender convicted of indecent liberties with a minor in 2006, according to the North Carolina Sex Offender Registry.

So I looked into it a little more deeper. That is when I found out he is a sex offender.”
