Murrysville police have accused a Wilmerding man of child rape.

Charles Herbert Roach IV, 20, was charged last week with two counts each of rape of a child; statutory sexual assault involving a child who is at least four years younger than he was; and involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child.

He also was charged with one count each of aggravated indecent assault of a child, indecent assault of a person less than 13 years of age and indecent exposure.

According to court documents, the charges stem from incidents that happened in Murrysville from December 2012 through April 2013.

The victim told her mother about the relationship after someone walked in on them, according to the police affidavit.

The Murrysville Star does not identify victims of sex crimes.

Roach was arraigned in front of Magisterial Judge Charles Conway in Export on Wednesday. He is free on an unsecured $10,000 bail.

Roach is scheduled for a preliminary hearing in front of Conway on May 14 at 10:30 a.m.
