A Steelton man has been arrested for harassing and racially intimidating children.

Mark Megoulas, 47, was taken into custody Wednesday evening after a neighbor in the 500 block of Bessemer Street reported his behavior, borough police said.

The neighbor told officers that she had allowed her children outside in her backyard to play, and at some point Mark Megoulas came outside and soon began harassing the children, including calling them racial slurs, police said.

Police said Megoulas had been warned after previous similar incidents.

He was charged with ethnic intimidation, two counts of disorderly conduct and harassment.
