AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Augusta man is behind bars facing a child molestation charge.

Deputies say 36-year-old Brian Ransom had sex with a 12-year-old girl in June.

The alleged victim claims it happened on four to five different occasions, according to the incident report.

Deputies were called to the 2000 block of Anne Street on Saturday after the father of the girl came to confront Ransom about the allegations. A fight broke out, and Ransom was later found by deputies walking along Lumpkin Road. Ransom was taken to the hospital with a severe cut to his head and complaints of back pain.
