Man who made lewd gestures toward child identified

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. -- Gwinnett County Police have identified the man accused of making lewd comments to a juvenile at a Lilburn-area park.

Investigators said the man made the comments and some inappropriate gestures to a child at Mountain Park Park on Five Forks Trickum Road. It happened Friday, June 5 at around 5:20 p.m.

Details of the incident are being kept confidential because it is classified as an act of child abuse, according to police.

Tuesday morning, investigators announced that several tips from the public helped them learn the man's identity. He was transported Monday to Gwinnett Medical Center for an involuntary committal.

Because the man suffers from "several mental conditions," no charges have been filed against him, and his identity has not been made public, according to Gwinnett County Police Cpl. Michele Pihera. Charges may be filed in the future.
