Report of attempted child luring in Arnold under investigation

Michael DiVittorio

New Kensington and Arnold police are investigating a report of a child-luring attempt.

Authorities said they are looking for an older, white man with a gray beard and a tan car.

He is suspected to have attempted to lure children into his vehicle in Arnold on Wednesday.

New Kensington police said no arrests have been made. Arnold police declined comment late Wednesday evening.

The New Kensington-Arnold School District alerted parents about the incident through calls and a post on the district’s Facebook page.

Superintendent John Pallone said the attempt did not take place on district property, and noted the district has security and cameras in all its schools.

“We have a good relationship with our police departments,” he said. “It’s prudent to make our children aware of potential dangers in our communities.”

Anyone with information about the incident can contact Arnold police at 724-339-9663 or New Kensington police at 724-339-7534.

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.
