Help sought in finding sex-assault suspect
Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers wants the public's help in finding a suspect in a child sexual assault case.
A 12-year-old Sharpsburg girl had sex in early April with a man who identified himself as being 18, Crime Stoppers reported. They met through a dating website and she agreed to meet him for a sexual encounter that happened on a riverbank in Sharpsburg, according to a news release.
Crime Stoppers said the man identified himself as “Tommy” and arrived in Sharpsburg on a Port Authority bus. Officials are asking anyone with information about his identity to call Crime Stoppers at 412-255-8477. An award of as much as $1,000 may be granted for information leading to an arrest and prosecution, and callers may remain anonymous.

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.
