Two Pittsburgh area men were reportedly arrested as part of the state’s ongoing crackdown on child predators.
According to a statement the Attorney General’s Child Predator Section arrested the two men, including a 67 year-old man of Washington, and a 37 year-old man of West Homestead, in separate stings. The 67 year-old suspect allegedly placed an online advertisement, to which an officer posing as a 14 year-old girl responded. After an alleged sexual conversation, the suspect set a time and place to meet the girl. When he showed up, he was arrested. The Defendant is facing multiple charges including criminal attempt to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child and criminal attempt to commit indecent assault on a person less than 16 years of age.
The 37 year-old suspect was arrested in a separate sting after an officer, posing as an underage girl, responded to one of his online ads. The suspect reportedly asked the officer posing as the girl for photos and engaged in sexual conversation. He, too, arranged a meeting and was arrested at the meeting location. He is facing charges including two counts of criminal attempt to commit indecent assault.
Both men were booked at Allegheny County Jail to await a preliminary hearing.
