A McKees Rocks man accused of rape and other sexual assault charges has turned himself in to authorities.

Allegheny County police said Nino Johnson, 24, turned himself in to McKees Rocks police around 9 p.m. Thursday.

He is charges with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault, aggravated assault, rape, terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person.

Charges stem from an incident June 10 around 11:10 p.m. along the 400 block of Derby Alley.

Police and paramedics were dispatched to the alley that evening and found a woman who stated that she was held at knifepoint and forced to perform sexual acts. She was taken to the hospital for an exam and has since been released in fair condition.

Authorities said Johnson will be taken to the Allegheny County Jail in Pittsburgh after police processing.

McKees Rocks Police requested the assistance of the Allegheny County Police Department General Investigations Unit.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

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. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
