Aliquippa announces new acting police chief

ALIQUIPPA, Pa. — Only Channel 11 talked to the man who's taking over the troubled Aliquippa Police Department.

His first day on the job and Captain Robert Sealock wants his community to know one thing, "All the bad publicity and unfortunate events, we’re just going to move through it. We’re going to continue to do what we do."

He has been protecting and serving this Aliquippa community for 21 years. He said that's not going to change.

Sealock is now the third officer to hold the chief position here in less than a week.


Chief Don Couch was put on paid leave over personnel issues, then a day later, acting Chief Joseph Perciavalle was arrested for allegedly texting a sexually explicit video to a 17-year-old.

Channel 11 learned the teen is the daughter of an Aliquippa sergeant and one of the last people to see murder victim Rachel DelTondo alive the night she was killed in her parents' driveway.

There have been no arrests in that case almost one month later.
