Mt. Lebanon HS Student Charged With Rape
MT. LEBANON (KDKA) — A 17-year-old junior at Mt. Lebanon High School has been charged with raping a teenage girl.
But Mt. Lebanon Police Lt. Aaron Lauth says the suspect has also been charged with assaulting another girl and sending threatening text messages to a third girl.
The suspect, who is not being named because he’s a juvenile, turned himself into police on Monday. He remains at the Shuman Detention Center.
Lt. Lauth says none of the alleged incidents happened at the school or on school property.
The district emailed parents to inform them of the arrest.
Police say the alleged rape happened in September and that the victim came forward last month. He says they learned of the other incidents while investigating the rape allegation.
Lt. Lauth says the suspect is accused of assaulting the second girl in the suspect’s home.
Police say the girls are high school students but won’t reveal where they attend.
The suspect is charged as a juvenile because he has no previous convictions and because a weapon was not used, according to police.
The teenager faces charges of rape, sexual assault, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, indecent assault, aggravated indecent assault, indecent exposure, terroristic threats and harassment.
