Newnan man arrested for molesting runaway girl in PTC
A Newnan man was arrested Thursday for having sex with a juvenile female whom he had helped run away from home in another state, police said.
Ryan A. Walker, 19, of Highlands Point, Newnan was charged with child molestation,
interference with child custody and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the police report.
The two were discovered Thursday morning by a police officer responding to the driveway of a home on Braelinn Creek Path on a report of two individuals “laying on one another in the driveway of a home.”
The report said that Walker “harbored” the juvenile after helping her runaway from home.
The report does not say how Walker first made contact with the juvenile, and police have said they are not releasing further information about the case at this point.
The reporting officer learned that the juvenile and Walker “have been sexually active within the past two weeks.”
The juvenile, whose name and age were not listed, was charged with “unruly-runaway” and “unruly-ungovernable” according to the report. The girl was released to the custody of her mother, the report said.
As of late Friday afternoon, Walker remained in jail without bond, but it is not clear if a bond hearing has taken place yet.
