West Mifflin, Allegheny County –  On August 2, 2017 we released information requesting “Community Assistance: Identification/Deviant Sexual Act at Kennywood Park.  On Thursday October 12, 2017 we obtained a warrant and arrested James Wright a 39 year old W/M from Baldwin Borough.

This case required substantial investigation as we received multiple identifications from the public and Kennywood Park Public Safety and Park Administration assisted with hours of surveillance video review.  Our Detectives through the review were able to ascertain a single suspect and were able to develop the appropriate probable cause.  The case was reviewed with the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office and charges were filed and we were able to facilitate this arrest today.

Thank you to all the persons who notified our “Tip” line and web page and to Kennywood for its continued vigilance with this case.  Charges for Stalking, Corruption of Minors, Unlawful Contact with a Minor, Indecent Assault and Indecent Exposure have been filed with the court against James Wright.
