Augusta teen, 17, arrested for groping girl at mall bookstore

A 17-year-old Augusta teen is spending his sixth day in jail on charges that he sexually groped the buttocks of a young girl inside the Barnes & Nobles.

Nicholes Blume, of Longsdale Drive, was arrested Monday for one count of non-aggravated child molestation. He also has a hold for investigations.

The groping of the 9-year-old girl became news Monday when the sheriff’s office released a Wanted Poster showing the suspect outside the Augusta Mall bookstore the day before. A sheriff’s report says the store manager called the cops Sunday afternoon when a man complained that his granddaughter was groped.

Here is what the girl told cops: “A man came up to her and asked her to pick a book up from the lower shelf. So when she went to pick the book up, the man touched her on the butt.”

The girl ran to her grandfather to tell him what happened. The manager confronted the suspect and asked for his ID. But the teen got irate and said he “didn’t have time for this” and had to be at work in three minutes.

Security video showed the teen try to touch the girl’s butt as she walked past him, but he missed. So he got her attention and touched her when she reached for the book he requested.

  1. Lock the perv in a room with the grandfather, and let the grandfather know that whatever he want do to the perv is acceptable for 30 minutes. Lock up, whatever is left of the perv. Probably will not be much. His parents, might not even recognize him, afterwards.
