Harrisburg, PA - Today, United States Marshal Martin J. Pane announced the arrests of Wendell Montalvo-Montalvo, 21, and James Reddick, 61, in York, PA.
On August 3, 2016, the York City Police Department obtained an arrest warrant charging Montalvo-Montalvo with aggravated assault – victim less than 6 and defendant 18 or older, simple assault and endangering welfare of children – parent/guardian/other commits offense. The warrant stems from the alleged use of physical violence on a child in his care on July 14, 2016.
On August 4, 2016, the York City Police Department obtained an arrest warrant charging Reddick with failure to register with the Pennsylvania State Police as part of his Megan’s Law requirement. Due to his conviction for rape in 1986, Reddick is required to register as a sex offender. In early July, it is alleged that Reddick failed to comply with this obligation for which an arrest warrant was issued.
Earlier today, Montalvo-Montalvo was located and arrested without incident in the 500 block of West Philadelphia Street and Reddick was located and arrested without incident in the 300 block of West Market Street, in York. Both men were turned over to local authorities for processing and court proceedings.
United States Marshal Martin J. Pane stated, “The U.S. Marshals Service Task Force places a high priority on cases in which there is the use or threat of violence against innocent victims. Our community will not be a safe haven for those charged with such crimes. We will seek them out so they may face justice.”
The USMS worked jointly in this investigation with personnel from the Pennsylvania State Police, Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, York City Police Department, York County Sheriff’s Office and the York County District Attorney’s Office.
