A man from Cumming has now been formally charged by the Superior Court of Forsyth County for alleged sexual attacks on two females, which authorities say took place in May and July of 2018. 

Nicholas Jordan Elliott Baglio, 25, of Cumming, was indicted by a grand jury on Dec. 10, for felony counts of rape, statutory rape, aggravated child molestation and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. 

Baglio was originally arrested on July 25, after a juvenile told adults she had allegedly been restrained and sexually assaulted by him, authorities said at the time of his arrest.

In Baglio’s indictment, details of two alleged assaults in May and July of 2018 are laid out, one incident allegedly against a person under 16 and the other against a related female.  

This case will be presided over by Chief Superior Court Judge Jeffrey S. Bagley and will be prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Courtney Moore.

Defense attorney A.J. Richman, who will represent Baglio at trial, declined to comment for the FCN.

Baglio is currently being held in the Forsyth County Jail on a bond of $220,020.
