MOORESVILLE, N.C. — An assistant principal at a local elementary school has been arrested and accused of committing a child sex crime.
Shaun Michael Bock, of Mooresville, has been charged by the Mooresville Police Department with one count of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
Bock has been with the Iredell-Statesville School District as an assistant principal at Coddle Creek Elementary School since July 2020, according to district officials.
The school district said that it appears the alleged victim is not a student of Iredell-Statesville Schools.
Police said they executed a search warrant at Bock’s home as well as at the school on Wednesday.
Bock was suspended that same day, pending an investigation from the police department and the school system.
“We will work in full cooperation with authorities to ensure this matter is thoroughly investigated,” said Iredell-Statesville Schools Superintendent Jeff James. “Our children are our most precious asset. Our job is to protect our children at all cost.”
No other information has been released.
Detectives are asking for anyone with information regarding this incident, any other similar incidents, or anyone else who may be a victim, to please contact Detective Garron Lawing with the Mooresville Police Department at 704-658-9007.
