A 39-year-old Dawsonville man has been arrested on charges of child molestation.


Kyle William Bancalari was charged Monday with two counts each of sodomy and aggravated child molestation.


He also faces three counts of child molestation and one count of sexual battery.

Bancalari was scheduled to appear Tuesday before a magistrate.


A spokeswoman from Amicalola Falls State Park said Bancalari worked at the restaurant in the lodge.


According to authorities, none of the alleged abuse occurred on park grounds.

Dawson County Sheriff’s Lt. Tony Wooten said the incidents took place in late 2009 and continued this month.


The alleged female victim, who recently notified investigators, is under age 16.


“Anytime a child comes forward that shows how brave they are to report something they should not have been faced with,” Wooten said.
