A Ge­or­gia man is in jail on charges he bit a 5-yearold boy and a 7-year-old girl, of­fi­cials said.

Deputies ar­rested Shawn Smith, 34, of Mur­rayville, about 1:15 p.m. Mon­day in the 200 block of Wisteria Drive with­out in­ci­dent, Hall County Sher­iff’s Lt. Scott Ware said.

It’s un­clear why Smith was at the ad­dress, but he was ar­rested in con­nec­tion with an in­ci­dent Feb. 12 in the 6200 block of Brady Road.

Smith pulled the girl’s arm be­fore bit­ing her on the shoul­der and leav­ing large marks and swelling, Ware said. That same day, he bit the boy on his face and left a large red mark, Ware said.

Smith’s re­la­tion to the chil­dren was not re­leased, but Ware con­firmed they all lived in the same home.

He was booked into the Hall County jail on two counts of first-de­gree cru­elty to chil­dren.

“This case re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Hall County Sher­iff’s Of­fice,” Ware said.
