Seriously Pennsylvania, what the hell? This is the fourth MyYearbook predator from your commonwealth that I’ve posted about in a row. If you keep this up I may have to start calling you Pedosylvania, which loosely translated means pedophiles’ woods. Creepy.
34-year-old Joshua Patterson of Braddock, Pennsylvania was arrested recently for allegedly assaulting a teenage girl that he met through MyYearbook. Patterson is accused of meeting a pair of girls from Boggs Township by posing as 19-year-old Joshua Phillips. Way to think up that alias Dillinger.
Anyway he met the two 14-year-old girls and at the meeting he began to rub one of the girl’s neck. Her friend tried pulling her away and Patterson allegedly tried holding on to her. He eventually escaped with the girl’s hoody. I wonder how many times he smelled it on the drive home.
Police were able to track Patterson down and he supposedly admitted to meeting other minors from the site as well.
Parents, again I say to you monitor what your kids are doing online. Make sure your friends with them on all their social sites. You are their parent first. Don’t worry about being the uncool parent. Worry more about your kids’ safety.
