Derrick D. Hill - Repeat Sex Offender

A 20-year-old man faces allegations he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl.

Derrick D. Hill, last known address of 1825 Hillcrest Ave. SW, North Canton, was arrested Tuesday by the FBI Fugitive Task Force.

Hill is charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and assault, police said.

Detective Bobby Grizzard said Hill had a relationship with the girl, whom he met through an older woman.

Police learned about the relationship after Hill was suspected of physically abusing the girl, Grizzard said.

He said Hill is a registered sex offender. Hill, who hid from authorities for months, was caught Tuesday in Perry Township. It is a Massillon case.

"He was aware we were looking for him," Grizzard said.

Hill also faces a charge of failure to register address change as a sex offender, a felony. The woman pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of child endangering in November. She is on probation.
