A Gainesville man is accused of having an “inappropriate sexual relationship” with an 11-year-old girl, police said.

Gainesville Police said Elmer Bonilla, 27, contacted the girl over social media, though Sgt. Kevin Holbrook did not say which one.

Holbrook said Bonilla “did solicit and entice the child” for sexual activity. Police did not release when this allegedly took place.

Bonilla was charged with enticing a child for indecent purposes and child molestation. He was booked Tuesday, April 24, in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains.

According to court officials, Bonilla planned to hire an attorney, but no record was on file Friday afternoon.
