A Hyde Park man is accused of forcing a teenage girl from the Alle-Kiski Valley to perform sex acts on him over a six-year period.

Johnny Harrison Orand, 47, of the 500 block of Murphy Street, is charged with 77 offenses, including multiple counts of rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault and indecent assault.

State police said the assaults started in 2008 and ended in February.

Orand allegedly threatened to harm the girl's younger sister or her dog if the alleged victim didn't cooperate.

The rape and sexual assaults happened in houses in Irwin and Hyde Park.

Kiski Valley state police investigated and filed charges.

Orand was arraigned Wednesday. He was taken to the Westmoreland County jail Friday in lieu of $75,000 bond.

Orand is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing Tuesday before Allegheny Township District Judge Cheryl Peck Yakopec.
