64-year-old accused of touching 2 girls indicted

A Muscogee County grand jury indicted a 64-year-old man earlier this week on accusations he inappropriately touched two girls, court records state.

John L. Arnold is charged with two counts of sexual battery, reports state.

Authorities allege Arnold touched an 8-year-old girl and her 9-year-old friend in October on the porch of a Havenbrook Court apartment. Police arrested Arnold after one girl’s father told officers about the accusation.

Arnold remains in the Muscogee County Jail with no bond, jail records state.
