DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. — A Middletown man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly attempted to sell his child.

Deniz Ak, 59, was offering to sell his child for $50 at the intersection of East Main and North Union Streets, police allege.

The child’s mother currently has a protection from abuse order against Ak, which also extends to the minor, according to police.
