A Duquesne man is wanted in connection with an assault Tuesday morning in Wilmerding that also caused an “Amber Alert” about a possible child abduction.

Nicholas Lomax, 28, is charged by Allegheny County police with use of an electric device to incapacitate another person, simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.

Lomax’s 8-month-old daughter was found, unharmed, in Versailles, county police said. She had been reported missing from McKees Rocks and was the subject of a child-abduction alert from Pennsylvania State Police.

County police said officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Middle Avenue in Wilmerding just before 10 a.m. Tuesday after a woman reported she had been attacked with a taser-like device. Police said she identified her assailant as Lomax.

Lomax fled the scene before officers arrived, police said.

Police found Lomax’s daughter unharmed later on Tuesday at a home in Versailles and the Amber Alert was cancelled.

County police asked anyone with information concerning Nicholas Lomax to call the tip line at 1-833-ALL-TIPS. Callers may remain anonymous.
