A man who was charged in June for sexually extorting and harassing six victims now faces 40 additional charges after nine more victims have been identified.
Ian Pisarchuk, 26, of the 3600 block of Skyline Drive, Bensalem Township, was charged Tuesday morning with multiple counts each of Child Pornography, Unlawful Contact, Corruption of Minors, Sexual Extortion, Stalking, Terroristic Threats, Harassment, and Cyber Harassment of a Child.
Pisarchuk has been held at the Bucks County Correctional Facility since failing to post 10% of $2,000,000 bail in his June 8th arrest for sexually extorting several victims as young as 12 years old. Pisarchuk will be arraigned on the new charges on Wednesday by video.
The investigation into Pisarchuk began in late 2020 when a juvenile victim came forward with information that led investigators to an IP address linked to Pisarchuk. A forensic examination of Pisarchuk’s phone yielded a cache of sexually explicit materials featuring both juveniles and adults, as well as information directing them to several additional victims. One of the victims identified was 21-year-old Lindsey Piccone, who has since taken her own life.
