Arnold man charged with indecent assault
An Arnold man is accused of having improper, sexually related contact with an 11-year-old girl in the township last month.
Don Levon Graves, 24, of the 1800 block of Alcoa Street, is accused of trying to convince the girl to expose herself on May 26.
According to an Allegheny County Police affidavit, Graves and another man were visiting a Harrison residence.
The girl's mother drove the other man to New Kensington and the remaining adults were talking on the front porch while the girl was upstairs.
At some point, Graves asked to use the bathroom. He was directed to a first-floor restroom but was told to go upstairs when he asked for something "a little more private," police allege.
He is accused of waking the girl, asking to see her underwear and more, and starting to unzip her shorts.
Police said Graves left the house after the girl resisted and ran to find her mother.
The mother later picked out Graves from a photo array.
Graves is accused of unlawful contact with a minor to engage in indecent assault, corruption of minors and attempted assault.
He was arraigned on June 6 and remained in the Allegheny County Jail on Tuesday in lieu of $100,000 bail pending a preliminary hearing scheduled in Brackenridge.
