Convicted rapist charged in Pymatuning Twp incident

PYMATUNING TWP, Pennsylvania (WKBN) – A convicted rapist was back in jail Saturday after investigators said he tried to rape a teenager. Walter Krieg, 54, was arrested on Thursday after a chase through several Shenango Valley communities.

The Pennsylvania State Police Mercer barracks continues looking for more information on that attempted rape along East Lake Road in Pymatuning Township, saying Krieg tricked the female teen into a wooded area where she was forced to perform a sex act on him.

Krieg faces a dozen charges, including kidnapping, criminal attempt – rape, endangering the welfare of a child and indecent assault. Bond was set at $250,000.

This is not the first time Krieg faced rape-related charges. He served a lengthy sentence and is currently on parole for rape and another sexual crime in the 1990s.

Krieg is a Tier 3 sexual offender, which means he will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
