A Gainesville man is accused of molesting a 10-year-old girl, police said.

Napoleon de Jesus Sorto-Lopez, 29, was charged with child molestation. He was booked Saturday in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains.

Gainesville Police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said authorities believe this happened last week at a private residence in the city.

The child’s mother reported it to law enforcement, and Holbrook said Sorto-Lopez and the child were previously acquainted.

Through the course of the investigation, Holbrook said Sorto-Lopez was accused of “inappropriate sexual encounters” with the child.
