Benjamin Feucht, who describes himself on LinkedIn as a State Farm insurance representative, has been charged with abuse of a minor and related offenses for allegedly performing oral sex on a 16-year-old boy he met on a SEPTA bus and offering him money for naked photos.

Feucht, 22, of Brookhaven, told Delaware County detectives that he initially asked the victim for pictures so he could sell them to another creepster he met on Craigslist who wanted to purchase young males' underwear as well, according to the criminal complaint. But Feucht, who said he performed oral sex on the victim once, also admitted that he wanted the photos for himself, the complaint states. He later called a detective and said he had video on his phone of the victim masturbating.

The investigation began earlier this month when the victim's father accessed the family's computer and found online chats between his son and Feucht.

A 23-year-old woman was arrested Sunday and charged with the Thursday murder of a Rite Aid manger in Chester, just one day after her alleged accomplice was arrested for the same crime.

Police said Rita Pultro, 23, and David Wiggins, 24, both of Philadelphia, shot Jason McClay, 40, to death around 10 p.m. inside of the Rite Aid on Ninth and Highland streets in Chester where McClay worked as a store manager.

The two allegedly went to the store with the intent to rob it, but fled with nothing after shooting McClay, police said.

Great Scott! This has to be one of the least Charmin' arrests ever.

Upper Darby police said a home intruder who almost made a clean getaway early this morning was nabbed by his own bowels when he had to run back in the house he had just fled to use the bathroom.

Police found the man, Gerald Fox, sitting on the porcelain throne when they busted into the bathroom with their guns drawn, said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Alexander Poulides (

Imagine a banana hurtling through the air in slow motion, end over end, toward a black baseball player from a visiting team inside a major league baseball stadium.

This happened in San Francisco’s AT&T Park on Aug. 11 and Baltimore Orioles All-Star center-fielder Adam Jones was rightly pissed off. The Giants were embarrassed and apologetic and the fruit launcher, according to an interview he gave to the San Jose Mercury News, was in shock, claiming he was merely frustrated at the Giants and not a racist.

"In hindsight, I wish I didn't do it and I apologize,” Alexander Poulides, of Northern California, told the paper after he realized his banana was big news in the bay area.

Not the actual street fighters from the melee in Chester Monday night.

When I called Chester Police Commissioner Joseph Bail Jr. today to ask about a fight in Chester last night that reportedly involved 100 people, his first response was "We've had bigger."

Still, the facts surrounding this brawl are disturbing:

Police were called to a fight involving 100 people in Chester's Sun Village section last night that resulted in the arrest of 10 people between the ages of 15 and 39 for charges including aggravated assault on police, said Chester Police Commissioner Joseph Bail Jr.
