    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A school security guard accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl in North Carolina is under arrest and out of a job.

    News outlets report 26-year-old Mario McIlwain of Rock Hill, South Carolina, is accused of assaulting the girl from February until May at a middle school in Charlotte.
