A Pulaski Township man is wanted for the alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl.

A criminal complaint that Pulaski Township police filed against Maverick Joseph Connors, 19, of 822 S. Valley View Road, also alleges that Connors gave the teen alcohol and cocaine before the alleged sexual assault took place, knowing how old she was.

Connors is accused of having sexual relations with the girl twice at his house on June 13 last year.

The Pulaski police were alerted to the matter by Franklin Park police, who contacted them from Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh while investigating the reported rape. 

That officer told Pulaski police that the teen had been with a 14-year-old girl, and a male drove them both to Connors' house.

The police conducted a forensic interview with the teen at the Children's Advocacy Center at Children's Hospital and she described the two sexual assaults and said that he gave her alcohol and cocaine and was in an altered state of mind, according to the court papers.

The police served a search warrant at Connors' house on June 14, 2018, and seized items that the girl had described from that evening. 

The police interviewed Connors in October at the police station and he gave a DNA sample, the paperwork states. The police noted that there were samples inside the teen's underclothing that matched Connors' DNA. 

He faces two counts each of statutory sexual assault, being 4 to 8 years older than the minor victim and sexual assault; 20 counts of corruption of minors and one count of indecent assault without consent of another.

A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
