Penn Hills man accused of molesting teen girl

A Penn Hills man was arraigned Monday on charges of molesting a 13-year-old girl on numerous occasions in the past 15 months.

Luumba T. Green, 37, who is also known as “Che” or “Cavalier,” remains in the Allegheny County Jail to await a preliminary hearing scheduled next week on nearly a dozen charges including indecent assault and corrruption of minors, court records show.

The girl told police she was 12 when the assault began in July 2012, the first time when she was asleep on a couch in a biker's club in Homewood. She also said that Green at times paid her $40 to take obscene pictures of herself.

Police said the assaults stopped after a school counselor overheard the girl talking about them with a friend. When her mother learned what happened, she forbade Green to see the girl anymore, the teen told police.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.
