A tip received via Facebook led McKeesport police to arrest a Crawford County man whom they allege was having an inappropriate relationship with a city teen-ager.
Glen M. Stevens Jr., 34, of Cochranton, Pa., was arrested Wednesday and is being held in the Allegheny County Jail without bond pending a preliminary hearing July 11 before Magisterial District Judge Eugene Riazzi.
McKeesport police said officers received a tip via Facebook that a man identified as Stevens had been having explicit physical contact with a 15-year-old girl and that he was currently at the teen’s residence in the East End of the city.
The tipster included photos that police said showed Stevens kissing and touching the girl inappropriately.
McKeesport officers said they went to the home to investigate and spoke to the victim and her family, but did not locate Stevens. As they were preparing to leave, police said they were told by a witness that Stevens was hiding in the basement of an adjoining home.
Police said investigators found Stevens in the basement and that he was taken into custody without incident.
Police are continuing their investigation, according to a report.
Stevens is charged by McKeesport police with unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault and corrupting the morals of minors.
