'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A 14-year-old boy said he was inappropriately touched three times in the electronics section of a Wal-Mart store in Somerset County, state police said.

A white man about 6 feet tall with a chubby build and in his 40s touched the youth about 8 p.m. Friday in the store in Somerset Township, police said.

The suspect might have been wearing blue sweat pants and a blue zip-up hoodie with a gray shirt underneath, authorities said. He wore glasses with thick lenses and a camouflage hat with no hair visible underneath.

The man might have a speech impediment and possibly an abnormality or disability to his right hand, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 814-445-4104.
