A 54-year-old man was arrested Thursday after authorities say he molested two teenage boys in a Gainesville neighborhood last month, police said.
James Jackson Hall III is in the Hall County jail on child molestation and sexual battery charges stemming from the Jan. 31 assaults, Gainesville police spokesman Kevin Holbrook said in a statement.
Holbrook said Hall approached two teens at different times and locations in the New Holland area of Gainesville and began asking them random questions. Hall allegedly groped them and left the area.
Hall was arrested after a search at his Indian Circle home.
No other details were released.
