U.S. Marshals arrest Dauphin County man wanted for sexual assault of minors


The United States Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force arrested a Dauphin County man wanted on sexual assault charges involving minors.  In July 2013, the Lower Paxton Township Police Department began investigating Amah Ziadeh, 53 after allegations of sexual misconduct on two minors. Ziadeh allegedly had inappropriate contact with the minors on multiple occasions.

Last week on March 24, Township police obtained an arrest warrant charging Ziadeh with 2 counts of Corruption of Minors, 2 counts of Unlawful Contact With Minor and 2 counts of Indecent Assault.

Members of the Fugitive Task Force arrested Ziadeh without incident in the 1600 block of Colonial Road this morning. Following arraignment he was released on $50,000 unsecured bail. Ziadeh was ordered to surrender his Egyptian passport and his travel restricted to Pennsylvania. He was also placed under pre-trial supervision pending the final disposition of his case.
