According to police, the incident happened at the Christ Church in Greensburg on April 22.
“He walked in like he wanted to play piano for them, but was asking for money,” Greensburg Police Captain Robert Stafford said.
A white male allegedly approached a group of girls after Mass and asked for money to play the piano. The girls, ages 6 to 10, said they didn’t have any money.
“He started patting them down, but it was more than a normal pat down,” Stafford said. “He was really touching their whole entire body.”
The man allegedly began searching the girls and touching their hips and legs in the process. He then grabbed a sugar packet and began sprinkling it on the girls’ heads.READ MORE: Pittsburgh Weather: Approaching Cold Front Prompts Tornado Watch, Tornado Warning As Season Changes To Fall
Before he left, he told the girls not to report his action because he would get in trouble.
“He told them not to say anything or he might get in trouble,” Stafford said.
The suspect is described as being in his mid-30s, bald, with a medium build and facial hair. He was last seen wearing a black jacket that possibly had some lettering on the back.
He has been seen at Mass before, but is not believed to be a congregation member.
“Nobody there knew him,” Stafford said.MORE NEWS: Couple Arrested In Westmoreland County Facing Charges In Disappearance And Death Of 3-Year-Old
