Local News

MEYERSDALE, SOMERSET Co, Pa. (WTAJ) – Police arrested the owner of WQZS 93.3 radio located in Meyersdale after he tried to get random men to rape a female friend of his.

Police say 68-year-old Roger Dale Wahl hid a camera in his friend’s bathroom several years ago to capture nude photos. Wahl would then set up a fake dating profile portraying the woman and send those nudes to random men. He would proceed to send the men her address and ask to come have sex, all while the men are assuming they’re talking to the woman.

One man from the dating site went to the woman’s home, but he was met by Wahl instead.

Wahl told the man that other men would potentially be solicited to do the same acts with him, as well.

Police said that the victim, who is not named, was unaware of everything. Police report that Wahl deleted the photos and online conversations after he found out that police talked to the woman.

Wahl’s home address is listed as the same as the radio station address.

Wahl is now facing multiple charges including rape solicitation, identity theft, criminal use of a communication facility, and invasion of privacy as well as other charges, officials say.
