A 59-year-old man has been arrested on charges of child molestation, according to Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson.

He is alleged to have committed the crimes at a Rossville, Ga., residence on Sept. 4. The victim’s age and sex are not being released in order to protect their identity.

Woods was released on bond for similar charges that occurred in February in Tennessee.
