A Gainesville man is accused of approaching two male teenagers in the New Holland area and groping them, police said.

James Jackson Hall III, 54, was charged with two counts of child molestation and two counts of sexual battery.

On Jan. 31, Hall allegedly approached the teenagers at different locations and times in the New Holland area. He then “began asking random questions and then groped them before leaving the area,” Gainesville Police Sgt. Kevin Holbrook said.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation teamed up with Gainesville Police and identified Hall as the suspect.

The agencies searched an Indian Circle home Thursday in Gainesville.

Hall was booked in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains.
