A Sunday school educator in Cobb County faces a child molestation charge after he purportedly groped a 13-year-old girl, officials said.
George Ray Scott Jr., 64, of Marietta, was held last week after being indicted for grabbing the child’s breast Nov. 10 while inside Covenant United Methodist Church off King Springs Road in Smyrna, according to an arrest warrant.
Scott was a Sunday school professor at the church, Cobb police spokeswoman Sydney Melton told media reports.
The girl told officials about the incident during a forensic interview, adding that the encounter “felt wrong,” the warrant said. A nearby adult allegedly witnessed the episode.
The sheriff’s office held Scott Jan. 13 before being discharged the next day on an $11,220 bail, according to Cobb jail records.
Because the inquiry involves a minor, Melton did not reveal additional information.
