KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — A Kannapolis man is facing charges because police said he refused to listen to investigators when they ordered him to stay away from a 15-year-old girl.

According to WSOC, Eric Thomas was arrested and charged with second-degree kidnapping last week after police said he met up with the teen he was having an inappropriate relationship with after he was released from jail.

He was previously arrested Sept. 12 on charges of taking indecent liberties with a child when police were first notified of the relationship.

It was reported that Thomas’ mother, Barbara King, knew about the relationship and that it had gone on for a while.

King told WSOC that the girl kept trying to reach her son after his arrest. She said she told him to stay away from her, but he didn’t listen to her.

Thomas is in the Cabarrus County Jail under a $150,000 bond.

    Charge that nut for looking crazy. Classic case of fetal alcohol syndrome or mom and dad being brother and sister. That’s one trashy looking piece of horse squeeze?

    He doesn’t drive a black van with tinted windows does he. He looks like he could and there was a story about one trying to pick up a girl somewhere around Charlotte.

    and it seems that everyone completely overlooked the fact that the girl continued to attempt to contact him after his release……can we please have some consequences for the other, supposed “innocent” victims in some of these cases
