A 49-year-old North Braddock man was jailed Tuesday after his arrest by Murrysville police for allegedly raping a woman last month.

Georges Sage Berlin was ordered held in the Westmoreland County jail after failing to post $125,000 bond after his arraignment before Penn Township District Judge Helen Kistler.

Berlin is charged with rape, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, unlawful restraint and stalking.

Devlin said Berlin showed up unexpectedly at the woman's residence at 11:30 p.m. Oct. 18 when the assault allegedly occurred.

Police officer Joseph Devlin reported the victim had dated Berlin, but recently broke off the relationship. The Tribune-Review does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault.

The victim told police that Berlin repeatedly had “been calling, texting and sending emails to contact her after the sexual assault.”

“The suspect had left messages on the victim's cell phone attempting to apologize for his actions,” Devlin wrote in the affidavit of probable cause filed before Kistler.

Berlin's preliminary hearing is scheduled for Tuesday before Export District Judge Charles Conway.
