Deputies arrested an 81-year-old Duncan man accused of grabbing and assaulting an 11-year-old girl while she was walking home from school Wednesday.
Spartanburg County deputies said the girl's grandmother reported the assault Wednesday afternoon when the girl came home and said a man grabbed her, hugged her then put his tongue in her mouth and fondled her chest.
After deputies interviewed the victim, her grandmother and the suspect, they arrested James Holmes.
He was charged him with assault and battery third-degree and released from jail on a $2,000 bond.
