On Thursday morning, September 15th, an observant Wellsville officer noticed this man loitering near the middle-high school attempting to engage female students in conversation. The officer contacted the man and identified him as Arthur Mascho of Belmont. Mascho is a level 2 registered sex offender. The officer then escorted the man away from campus. According to the New York State Sex Offender Registry Mascho has no stipulations or limitations since his probation has expired. The incident is being reviewed by the Allegany County District Attorney's Office. We urge anyone to call 911 if they see anyone suspicious at or near any school campus.
