WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. — A 13-year-old girl says a man wanted by police for a “deviant sex act” at a Pittsburgh-area amusement park exposed himself to her while they both waited in line for a ride.

West Mifflin police have posted security video and photo images of the suspect on their Facebook page.

The girl tells KDKA-TV (http://cbsloc.al/2v3dCjk ) that she was at Kennywood Park waiting to ride Log Jammer — a ride in which a log shaped raft floats along a watery track — when she felt something warm on her leg and turned around. She said the man’s privates were exposed and he told her softly, “Sorry, I have a problem” before running away.

A Kennywood spokesman says park officials are cooperating with the police investigation of Wednesday’s incident.

The park about 10 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
