A Grovetown man arrested last week for sexual misconduct against a 14-year-old girl at an Evans park was charged today with additional sex crimes against a different victim.
Following an investigation, police charged Landon “Dock” Norman, 38, of the 1900 block of Long Creek Falls, with aggravated sodomy, aggravated sexual battery and rape after a 16-year-old girl reported in April that he fondled and performed oral sex on her, according to an email sent by Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris.
Norman initially was arrested Oct. 24 for inappropriately touching a 14-year-old girl at Riverside Park, where her brother and Norman’s son played baseball together, as reported in a sheriff’s office incident report.
The girl’s mother said Norman first started talking with her daughter at the park while the teams practiced. She said Norman added the teen as a friend on Facebook and later made inappropriate comments and sent nude pictures to her email address, according to the report.
During a practice at Riverside Park in June, Norman took the girl to a secluded area and told her to get into his vehicle, where he made advances toward her and molested her. He then threatened to kill her if she told anybody about the incident and continued to inappropriately touch the girl until he left to pick his son up from the park.
In that incident, he was charged with aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and five counts of electronically distributing obscene material to a minor.
Norman is being held at the Columbia County Detention Center without bond. A bond hearing scheduled Friday afternoon was postponed to a later date because of the additional charges.
