Police have issued a warrant for Nino Johnson, 24, in connection with a June 10, 2019, sexual assault in McKees Rocks.

Allegheny County police issued an arrest warrant for a 24-year-old man in connection with a sexual assault that took place Monday in McKees Rocks.

Police are seeking Nino Johnson, who they said is known to frequent McKees Rocks and Pittsburgh’s North Side neighborhood.

On Monday night, the McKees Rocks Police Department and paramedics were dispatched to the 400 block of Derby Alley for a report of a sexual assault. Police say they found a female victim who stated that she was held at knife point and forced to perform sexual acts. She was taken to the hospital for an exam and has since been released in fair condition.

Police say Johnson is wanted on charges of aggravated assault, rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, sexual assault, terroristic threats, and recklessly endangering another person.

Johnson is a black male, 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing approximately 175 pounds with black hair, brown eyes, and a medium build.

Anyone seeing Johnson is asked to contact 911 immediately. Anyone with information on his whereabouts or about this incident is asked to call the Allegheny County Police tip line at 833-ALL-TIPS (833-255-8477); callers can remain anonymous.

The department can also be reached via its social media sites.

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.
