A Loudon man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly grabbed a juvenile from behind and hugged and kissed her.

Sweetwater Police Sgt. Kris King said he went to Kmart and talked with the juvenile and two witnesses who said a man identified as William Clowers, Highway 725, Loudon, allegedly came up behind the juvenile, wrapped his arms around her, forcibly kissed her on the cheek and tried to turn her around so he could kiss her on the mouth.

One of the witnesses told King as soon as she realized the juvenile didn't know the man, she yelled at him to stop and the man left the store.

The two witnesses followed him out to his car and pointed him out when King arrived.

Clowers admitted to King he didn't know the juvenile and admitted what he'd done, but said he had no idea why he did it.

King said the incident was captured by a security camera and charged Clowers with sexual battery to a minor.
