LUCEDALE, MS (WLOX) - LUCEDALE, MS (WLOX) - A seemingly safe setting was the scene of a crime against a child last week.

Lucedale Police Chief Barry Lambert told WLOX News a family eating lunch at a restaurant in Lucedale called police to report a man had molested their 7-year-old son in the bathroom. The incident happened August 19.

Anthony Holland, 20, was arrested and charged with the "unlawful touching of a child." The family said Holland molested their son while he and a friend were using the restroom.

Anthony Holland bonded out of the George County jail three days after his arrest on a $5,000 bond.
