• Man accused of exposing himself at pool claims ‘wardrobe malfunction'


    McCANDLESS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A man is facing charges for allegedly exposing himself to people at North Park Swimming Pool in McCandless Township, police said.

    Christopher Steffy, 62, is accused of exposing himself at the pool on two occasions, once on Thursday, June 27 and again on Monday, July 1.

    When police were called to the pool Monday, Steffy was trying to leave on his bicycle and he claimed he had just been at the pool to swim laps, according to a criminal complaint.

    Two women were questioned about Steffy’s behavior. One of the women said she was sitting on a bench outside the men’s changing room when Steffy came to the doorway in his underwear and started swinging his hips, at which point he was exposed.

    "[I was] very shocked, as well with everyone else who witnessed it. It was unbelievable. We just couldn't believe it," one of the witnesses told 11 News.

    Steffy told Channel 11 News Wednesday that the matter was a “wardrobe malfunction.”

    Police said Wednesday afternoon that an arrest warrant has been obtained for Steffy, who is facing charges of indecent exposure and open lewdness.

    "The individual in question is prohibited from entry to the county’s pools until further notice.  Staff at our North Park Pool are familiar with him and will be on the lookout for him should he try to come to the facility. Similarly, information will be shared with the staff at our other pools as well," Parks Director Andy Baechle told 11 News.
