WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A man is in jail after police say he touched a girl last night in a Wilmington restaurant.

George Thomas Boulden Jr., 51, is charged with indecent liberties with a child.

WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley says around 8:30 p.m. Sunday officers responded to Kickback Jack's on S. College Rd. Investigators say Boulden, who they say was drunk, several times walked by and rubbed his hands around the waist and buttocks of a 7-year-old girl. Several witnesses told police they saw what happened.

Boulden is in jail under $40,000 bond.

What was a child that age

What was a child that age doing in a place designed for excess drinking? Who brought her? Why were they not aware of a life changing violation of a child's body by a drunk???

Its a restaurant

That just so happens to serve alcohol. They have childrens menu's and Tuesday specials...are you justifying this guy touching a child because she was near him?

FIrst, shame on all of you

FIrst, shame on all of you for believing everything you read. Second, shame on all of you for judging. THere is no such thing as a place "designed excessive drinking". There were other children there with their parents, and this child was sitting at a table eating dinner with her family. Nobody watched this guy touch her 3 times!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! A guy walked by and hit her on her BACK twice. She thought the first was a mistake. The second time, she told her parents, who immediately notified staff. By the time he walked by the 3rd time, 2 managers, the parents and an off duty Law Enforcement member were watching him. That is the only time ANYBODY witnessed anything. The father immediately grabbed the guy and detained him while management called police. The media is making it out to be more salacious than it is, and how dare all of you cast blame on anyone. That little girl, nor her parents were doing anything wrong. They were sitting at a table eating dinner!!!!!!! Shame on all of you!!!!

Bar/Restaurants and children

Some states do not allow children to be in any establishment that serves alcohol.

Even if that was the case

Even if that was the case here, it would not excuse the pervert's behavior.

This isn't one of them

So why bring that up?

If Boulden is guilty, let's

If Boulden is guilty, let's make sure he is sent to a facility where his own waist and buttocks get "rubbed".

do what??

Who would watch this occur even ONCE and not do anything? He would NOT have been able to walk out of that place if that had been a child with me ! Just how many drunks are in that place? Sounds like a bunch of lowlife trash in there.

Why didn't somebody say

Why didn't somebody say something the first time he touched her instead of waiting until "several times" later?

possibly

It might be because one person wasn't sure if they saw what they though they saw. Then when they saw it again and confirmed they saw what they thought they saw, they spoke up.
