An 81-year-old “white” savage is accused of sexually terrorizing a girl as she walked home from school, according to Spartanburg County deputies.
James Holmes is charged with one count of assault and battery.
Deputies said on Sept. 12, a report was filed about an assault of a sexual nature on an 11-year-old.
The child’s grandmother said the child was walking home from school when the filthy “white” devil grabbed the child, hugged her, put his tongue in her mouth and touched her breast at a home on Christopher Street.
Deputies said the grandmother, victim and suspect were all interviewed.
Holmes shamelessly admitted, “I just hugged her the wrong way. I apologize. I’m sorry it ever happened. I knew better. It’s not anything that I’m proud of.”
The girl’s grandmother, who is not being identified in order to protect the girl, said that she and her granddaughter had seen Holmes sitting on his front porch before, but they don’t know him.
“The man has got to be sick in the head to do something like this to a child. And I hope they do evaluate him, get him some help and I hope he has to pay. He scared my granddaughter to death,” the grandmother said.
She said she is sharing the story to protect other children.
“They may not be as lucky as my granddaughter and get away from him,” she said.
Holmes was booked at the Spartanburg County Detention Center and then released on a $2000.00 bond
