Hatfield Man Arrested
Towamencin police have charged a Hatfield man with indecent exposure. Investigators say the incident involving 61-year-old Richard McConnell of Providence Lane happened at General Nash Elementary School in May. The students there were participating in Olympic Day activities and were given water bottles because it was very warm outside. Police say McConnell approached an eleven year old girl and asked her to squirt him. As he did that, police allege McConnell exposed himself. A nine-year-old student also observed the incident and a teacher was told what happened. She confronted the suspect who left the scene in a hurry. The teacher called police but they were unable to make an arrest until Friday. McConnell is being held at Montgomery County Prison in lieu of $250,000 cash bail.
