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.
