STATEMENT FROM MAYOR WILLIAM PEDUTO ON ARREST IN MILANO'S PIZZA ASSAULT

CLARIFICATION: THIS INCIDENT WAS AT PIZZA MILANO IN UPTOWN AND NOT MILANO'S PIZZA IN OAKLAND.

"This morning I was made aware of the deeply disturbing video from Milano's Pizza. I have worked through the day with Pittsburgh Police leadership and charges have now been quickly brought. I want to thank the community for their assistance in the investigation, and the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police for their hard work throughout the day. It is my sincere hope that these charges are another step in sending a very clear signal that Pittsburgh will not tolerate violence against women and that we will work as a community to protect all women, and notably African American women, from physical and emotional violence." - Mayor William Peduto
