4 Teens Come Forward In Pumpkin Attack
OAKMONT (KDKA) — Four teenagers have turned themselves in after pelting a man with a pumpkin.
The attack happened on Pennsylvania Avenue in Oakmont.
Rose and Daniel Wagner were out for a stroll when Daniel, 64, was hit and suffered a concussion.
A surveillance camera at a nearby school recorded a white SUV driving away from the scene.
Someone at the school thought they recognized the car. Police tracked it down. That’s when two 15-year-olds, a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old turned themselves in.
“It started out as a prank. They were going to steal some pumpkins which they did and they got the pumpkins and they were in a vehicle and threw a pumpkin from the vehicle,” Oakmont Police Chief David DiSanti said.
Police are praising the kids for coming forward – commending them and their parents for their honesty
The four teens, from the Verona and Penn Hills area, will now likely face fines, restitution and community service for their careless prank.
Daniel Wagner continues to recover.
