A Forsyth County man facing charges of biting two young girls has been arrested again, this time on an aggravated stalking charge.

According to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s report, Monday’s arrest of Gordon Kent Nelson, 44, followed a confrontation with the family of a child he allegedly bit in August.

A court hearing is expected this week.

According to the report, the girl was with family members, including her parents and an uncle, when Nelson entered a Walmart on Atlanta Highway.

The family was checking out when Nelson entered the store, the report said. As they left, he reportedly followed them into the parking lot, where a confrontation ensued.

Nelson was arrested in May and charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery after being accused of biting the 8-year-old girl in August 2009 and another girl the same age in March.

As a condition of his bond from the alleged biting incidents, Nelson was to have no contact with either victim or their families.

In Monday’s incident, the uncle reported that when the family “attempted to leave the parking lot, Nelson followed them in his vehicle and blew kisses at them.”

Sheriff’s Capt. Frank Huggins said in a statement that “a verbal argument between the two men followed.”

“Nelson left the scene when the girl’s father advised Nelson they were calling authorities,” Huggins said.
