BETHLEHEM, Pa. -

Bethlehem police are looking for help identifying people who may have been victims of a child sex offender.

Donald Pembleton was arrested April 26, 2013.  He was charged with, among other things, sexually assaulting a 4-year-old child, police said.

According to police, he had been seen assaulting the child in the 500 block of Thomas Street in Bethlehem.  During the investigation, police learned that Pembleton had been hanging around the neighborhood asking about young children.  They saw he also approached children in the neighborhood.

His behavior, police say, may mean that other victims have not reported their assaults.

Police as asking parents to report any crimes so they may help you find the support you need.  You can contact Detective Moses Miller at 610-997-7674 or Bethlehem Police at 610-865-7187.
