Cary, NC - A Cary firefighter who also worked as a substitute teacher in the Wake County Public School System is facing charges after police said he had sex with a minor in the restroom of a Greensboro area park in June.

Christopher Angelo Manzo, 22, of the 600 block of Silverberry Drive in Pittsboro, is accused of engaging in sexual activity with a 14-year-old boy during an arranged meeting at Bur-Mil Park, according to the Greensboro Police Department.

Manzo, who was arrested Monday while at the Cary Police Department, was released to the custody of Greensboro police and charged with statutory sex offense and two counts of indecent liberties with a minor.

He was in the Greensboro jail late Monday under a $100,000 bond, reduced from $150,000. Manzo's next scheduled court appearance is August 21.

A spokeswoman for the town of Cary said Tuesday that Manzo has been a firefighter since September 2008. He remains employed there and was arrested while on duty, she said.

A spokeswoman for Wake County schools confirmed he was a substitute teacher from Feb. 13, 2012, to June 7, 2012, but is currently not approved to provide substitute services in schools.
