Key West, FL (June 7, 2019) – 47-year-old Gregory David Cameron of South Carolina was arrested on Wednesday night after police claim he grabbed the buttocks of two 11-year-old girls.
The incident took place at Boyd’s Key West RV Campground in Florida. When deputies arrived, they located Cameron at the public bathrooms at the park where the father of one of the girls was able to identify him. Police claim that he was highly intoxicated.
One of the girls told deputies that Cameron had been hanging around them and tried talking to them, telling them that he was going to go get a bucket of snails to show them. However, when he returned, he had nothing and grabbed both of them by the buttocks.
The girls went and told their parents immediately. Cameron tried to tell police that he had not been talking to the children but that he was simply walking to the pool.
Cameron has since been arrested on felony charges of lewd and lascivious behavior and molestation.
