Man arrested in fondling

By The Times-Union

BRUNSWICK, Ga. - A 12-year-old North Georgia girl crabbing with a friend at the St. Simons Island pier reported being fondled Thursday by a man, Glynn County police said.

Police arrested Raymond Joseph Buecker, 57, of Waynesville, nearby a short time later, Assistant Police Chief Scott Trautz said.

Buecker has been charged with one count of sexual battery on a child under 16 and remained jailed without bail Friday, records showed.

The victim was crabbing with an 11-year-old female friend also from North Georgia at the pier in the village business district when a man approached them about 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Trautz said. The girls told police the man came up to them initially offering advice about crabbing, but then began making suggestive and sexually explicit remarks about their bodies, Trautz said.

The man then hugged the victim, brushing his hand across her buttock, he said.

Although such incidents are rare at the pier, Trautz said people should remain alert and call for help if needed.
