Avonmore man charged with sexually assaulting 7-year-old girl in Greensburg

Greensburg police arrested an Avonmore man Wednesday accused of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl in 2011.

George Michael Nuttall Jr., 35, is charged with indecent assault and corruption of minors.

The victim’s mother first reported the assault in 2011, according to court papers. The girl told her mother Nuttall repeatedly kissed her on the lips and touched her genitals.

Officials spoke to the girl at A Child’s Place Child Advocacy Center at UPMC Hospital, but the victim did not want to talk about the incident then because she was “embarrassed and did not want anyone to be mad at her,” according to the affidavit.

In July 2019, A Child’s Place contacted Greensburg police. The girl had recently disclosed details about the incident.

Investigators conducted two follow-up interviews with the victim in August and September, leading to the charges filed Wednesday against Nuttall.

He had not been arraigned Wednesday afternoon.
