During an interview, police said the victim told them George Henry Mander, of Laurie Lane in Marietta, asked the victim to touch himself in the genital area. According to police, when the victim did not respond, Mander reached into the boy’s pants and grabbed him in an inappropriate area. According to police, this went on for about five minutes, and the boy said Mander laughed, which made him angry.
According to police, the boy also drew a stick-figure depiction of the incident unprompted, and a similar picture was found at the victim’s home.
Mander is out of Cobb jail for now on $10,000 bond.
