New charges filed after Pa. firefighter arrested in Chesterfield in FBI child sex sting
CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - New charges have been filed against a Pennsylvania firefighter who was arrested in Chesterfield for allegedly trying to meet up with a 10-year-old child for sex.
A grand jury indicted Brian Koasanovich, a firefighter for the city of Pittsburgh, with multiple sexual offenses involving a minor, including attempted coercion and enticement of a minor and attempted aggravated sexual abuse with children.
The Pittsburgh Public Safety Department says he was identified as part of an FBI investigation and says the charges against him are “deeply disturbing.”
According to NBC affiliate WPXI, federal documents say Koasanovich was arrested at a Chili’s in Midlothian by undercover agents on Tuesday.
They then started a conversation on the messaging platform “Kik,” where the two discussed meeting for sex involving a 10-year-old girl and the mother, according to WPXI.
Pittsburgh officials said Koasanovich removed from duty and placed on unpaid administrative leave pending an investigation.
