McCandless man accused of exposing himself at North Park pool

Allegheny County police on Wednesday arrested a 62-year-old McCandless man who is accused of exposing himself to women at the North Park Swimming Pool.

Christopher Steffy turned himself in on charges of indecent exposure and open lewdness, police said. He was arraigned and released on $10,000 unsecured bond.

Police started investigating June 27, when two women reported a man had exposed himself at the pool, but they didn’t contact police until after the man left that day. On Monday, pool staffers familiar with the man notified police when he returned.

Police responded and questioned Steffy and after further investigation, they obtained a warrant for his arrest on the charges, which were filed Tuesday.

Steffy did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment. He told Tribune-Review news partner WPXI that the incident in question was the result of a wardrobe malfunction.

Police are seeking more information about the incidents and are asking people to call Allegheny County Police tip line at 1-833-255-8477.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
