Prowler Spotted In Cecil Township

CECIL TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — Police are warning neighbors in Cecil Township about a prowler.

The man apparently has been looking into homes where young girls reside.

Police say a teenager girl and her parents called 911 last Thursday after they caught a man looking through their living room window.

Neighbors say they plan to be on the lookout.

“Definitely going to spread the word to my neighbors and if I do see anything unusual, I am going to call the police,” David Brink said.

Police say there have been three prowler incidents since late November in the area of Hickory Grade Road and Cecil Henderson Road.

In each case, a teenage girl lived at the home.

“Right now the only thing we have is possibly a white male,” Cecil Township Police Detective Mark Marcucci said. “One description given, he was possibly chubby. Secondly, he was wearing a ski mask on the last incident.”

There have been reports of prowlers in Bridgeville and South Fayette also.

      Hello Young Mom,
      The problem is the Cecil police! They are too busy finding fault with the residents that pay their salaries. They will write tickets for drivers going 2 miles over the speed limit or shoot house cats instead of addressing real issues in the community. If Cecil police were doing their jobs, this would not be happening!

    Why not just go outside and confront this dude if he is fat like it says he wont run far. Why are people so afraid of everything?

    i went out after him but by the time i got outside he was gone. When he knew my child screamed for me he ran.. Its hard for some to chase him though when you have small kids to worry about….
    I just think that a prowler issue was reported in early November it should have been looked at better. In August there was a tall normal build man creeping around watching the kiddos swim…
    When i was a child in cecil it was safe I miss those days
