Shawn MillerGROVE CITY, PA — Police have charged 27-year-old Shawn Miller after they say he dragged a 9-year-old boy into a bathroom stall inside a Walmart.

The boy went into the Walmart restroom with his father and 6-year-old brother. After they left the bathroom, the boy was washing his hands when Miller allegedly came up behind him, grabbed him by the waist and dragged him into one of the stalls.

The boy was able to get away, but Miller reportedly grabbed him a second time and began pulling him back into the stall again. He only let the boy go when the boy started screaming for his father.

After running out of the restroom, the boy found his father and told him what had happened. The man was able to find Miller outside of the store, but Miller fled into a nearby wooded area.

Miller was quickly identified and apprehended after police supplied the media with some Walmart surveillance footage. “Walmart has exceptionally good video,” said Lt. Tom Dubovi, of Pennsylvania State Police.

Miller told police he tried dragging the boy into the stall, but only because he wanted to hit him for being “mouthy” with him in the bathroom. Uh-huh.

Shawn Miller is currently being held in the Mercer County Jail on charges of unlawful restraint and simple assault.

Regardless of what Miller’s intentions were in that bathroom, the entire time I was typing this up I couldn’t help but to be reminded of this scene from Rick and Morty:

    PERVERT! Hopefully this pedophile will serve serious time, doubt it, but hoping. Castration of pedophiles should be mandatory, he will just get out and do it again but probably kill the child so as not to serve time.

  • itsknotme

    Wow, I’ve heard of stores having a Wedding Registry, but taking little boys into a bathroom stall is this the next step -The Sexual Predator Registry?

  • SillyCynic

    I have to disagree on the mandatory castration. 2nd time offenders, I won’t argue with….but the first time they’re convicted, no.

  • Vesper B

    “Mouthy?” Is that what perverts are calling their crimes now?

    Guy’s lucky the dad didn’t get a hold of him with a bat.

  • mean birch

    love me some rick n morty……

  • Buffettgirl

    OK – so that was the excuse for the first grab, what’s the excuse for pulling him BACK into the stall? Sicko isn’t even smart enough to come up with something believable… I hope they sentence him to the max possible….

  • shewentwhoa


  • Unlawful restraint and simple assault? The max probably isn’t much, unfortunately…

  • Buffettgirl

    I know… and it sucks! I keep hoping that someone, somewhere will wake up and see the difference when sexual crimes are concerned. Because there is no doubt in ANYONE’S mind that that is where this was headed. Restraining your drunk girlfriend because you don’t think it’s safe for her to drive and she calls the cops on you is one thing, restraining a child in a bathroom at Walmart, yeah, that’s predatory behavior, no doubt about it.

  • Valerie

    He noticed the boy didn’t properly wipe and needed to give him a lesson? Maybe he has trouble cleaning up after himself when he craps and needs a hand so he was gonna have the boy help?

    Both better excuses than the kid being mouthy.

  • letinstar

    Bold pedo needs to be removed from this earth…

  • Buffettgirl

    Hey – don’t be all helping the pervs with their excuses! ;-P

  • Valerie

    I wish they could do that as well. People like this need to be gone from society.

  • Twisted1

    This is scary! As a mother of a boy I have waited outside the boys room many times. At 9 for the boy in question he is too old to go to the ladies room but too young to go alone. My son is 14 now but I still get worried about him in public restrooms as well as my 18 year old daughter. (She could probably whoop a mans butt though). Too many freaks and creeps out there. Guys like this are what give us parents nightmares and sleepless nights. I still think we need to tattoo these creeps. Like a permanent scarlet A on their face. Lol

  • Twisted1

    Can they get the tattoo on first conviction though? Please?

  • Twisted1

    Never mind what I wrote this is a edit. Last thing I want is to help them not get caught.

  • I get what you mean, but the system MUST be set up to protect the wrongfully accused. And charging someone for something simply because it seems obvious where it was headed encroaches dangerously close to thought crime territory.

    This man was charged with all the prosecution will be able to prove. As hard as that is to swallow in a case like this, it’s ultimately better for everyone.

  • Buffettgirl

    Do you happen to know if he’s been caught attempt this kind of thing before? Knowing that the system is set to err on the side of caution doesn’t make situations like this any easier on my brain. This type of thing is what turned me off from becoming an attorney and then a prosecutor. I thought I would be out there cleaning up the streets, not making morally unacceptable plea deals and having to ignore the clanging warning bells in my head…

  • SillyCynic

    What if they’re falsely convicted? Physically, not just paperwork branded for life for something they didn’t do?

  • SillyCynic

    I *gasp* agree with you, Athena.

    Guess it’s a good thing I just got new ice skates. I think hell just froze over.

  • You were away for a bit. Did you bump your head while you were gone? We used to agree all the time. So much so, I used to get teased about you by a jealous commenter. I had to remind him that you’re not a fan of kids, and I’ve got one, and I don’t do relationships with younger men, and you are one. But there’s more than one person around here who used to think we were a match made in quasi-Libertarianism. <3

  • I’m willing to bet that, if he had similar priors, we’d be looking at different charges.

  • Buffettgirl

    There goes that hope…

  • Me thinks he is going to regret this.

  • sativagrl

    Of course Walmart has exceptionally good video.. Those billions gotta go to somethin and a living wage for employees is out of the question.

  • Sejanus

    OH they are gonna love him at the crowbar motel…attempted kid diddler…ya the Bubbas will have a field….track and field day in his anus.

  • BlackHeywood

    I hope he’s made a prison bitch.

  • Lol right enough and I am sure there would be a few handy tools he could have bought from Walmart for the task too.

  • As a dude I cant think of anything worse than to be falsley convicted of something like that.

  • 1DireWolf

    Hope he dies in lockup.

  • JohnQknowitall

    NO NOT IN A WALMART!!!! Is no place in this country sacred any longer?

  • Leasha

    “he wanted to hit him for being ‘mouthy’ with him in the bathroom.”

    Now THAT’S a new one!

    PS- Is he in any way related to Julie Schenecker??

  • Mel

    he’s in jail now, the he would get released, move out to a different comunity and will try to do it again…sad they can’t keep weirdos like this one in jail forever!!

  • VenusDoom3

    Ice pick, garlic press, lighter, chains, duct tape, maybe a rake, charcoal BBQ grill for disposal…

  • patrickdh10

    The major problem is these brain damaged pedophiles have a supposedly 5-10% recidivism rate when in real life it’s more like 95% and the so called progressive therapist aka psychiatrists and psychologists continue to defy the Justice System and push for the release of these monster out into the unsuspecting public. Naturally the pedophiles revert to their demented ways ruining the lives of children and families over and over again while the psychiatrists and psychologists maintain their taxpayer income stream. Of course at times the income stream dips or is interrupted due to the loss of a patient who committed suicide after being prescribed one of their wonder drugs which the pharmaceutical companies pay them to peddle while the FDA fiddles.

  • sativagrl

    Plant a few oz of weed on him and they will

  • Eyam Ova-Urazis

    If that was my kid, this fool would be better off in jail.

  • Ursula Pine

    ” boy started screaming for his father.” a key part to this story, good on whomever taught this kid to not be afraid to get loud and obnoxious in a situation like this. The pedo (or rapist, etc) is counting on the kid or woman to freeze up and submit- practice NOT doing this!
