DALLAS, Ga. -- A Paulding County man was arrested last week for molesting two young girls.

Investigatorslearned that23-year-old Dakota James McNeil had been abusing his victims "over the course of the last several years," according to Paulding County Sheriff's spokesperson Ashley Henson.

McNeil was taken into custody on Oct. 4 for an incident of sexual abuse that took place at a house on Mona Place in Dallas on Sept. 11, Henson said.
