Back To Front Page

The Porter County Sheriff’s Police have made a quick arrest of a Valparaiso man in an alleged sex offense, thanks to the quick actions of Union Township School Corporation officials.

According to police, a 14-year-old student at Union Township Middle School informed administrators on Monday that she’d been assaulted by an adult while at a friend’s house on Saturday.

Administrators immediately contacted the PCSP School Resource Officer, who in turn contacted detectives. David Allen Erdelles Jr., 23, of 352, Apt. C, Salt Creek Parkway, was detained for questioning and subsequently booked into the Porter County Jail on a preliminary charge of sexual misconduct with a minor, a Class B felony punishable by a term of six to 20 years.

Erdelles was expected to be formally charged today.
