Ga. Man Charged With Biting Eight-Year-Old Girls

A Georgia man is facing misdemeanor battery charges after investigators say he allegedly bit two eight-year-old girls -- one on the hip and the other on her calf, reported Tuesday.

Gordon Kent Nelson, 44, from Cumming in north Georgia, turned himself in on Tuesday morning, Forsyth County Sheriff Ted Paxton said.

Nelson is charged with biting the girls on two separate incidents; one in March and the second in August 2009.

In 2009, the victim was an overnight guest of Nelson’s daughter in his home. In the most recent incident, the victim was the daughter of a female friend of Nelson. The alleged attack happened in the friend’s home when Nelson was alone with the girl, police said.

The sheriff said neither of the girls required extensive medical treatment. One was bitten above the hip and the other on her left calf.

Nelson is being held without bond pending a first appearance court hearing.
