Allegheny County sheriff's deputies over the weekend arrested two sex offender fugitives, including a Westmoreland County man.

Ronald Darrius Knight, 23, of Greensburg, was taken into custody late Saturday or early Sunday at a gas station along Route 819 in Youngwood, Sheriff Bill Mullen said in a news release.

Sunday afternoon, deputies arrested Donald Goldberg, 56, who is homeless, along Sixth Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh.

Both remained in the Allegheny County Jail without bond.

Knight was convicted in 2016 for sexual offenses involving a 13-year-old girl, according to the state police web site. He is a Tier 2 Megan's Law offender who must report to state police for 25 years.

A warrant for his arrest was issued Friday for failing to comply with terms of probation, the release said.

Goldberg was convicted in 2014 of indecent assault and other charges on a 5-year-old girl. He was ordered to register his whereabouts for life. A warrant for his arrest was issued Wednesday.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
