A Vandergrift man accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl is separately accused of getting other juvenile girls to drink some of his blood after he cut himself.

Jonathan Ryan Davis, 21, of Emerson Street, is also accused of getting three girls to cut themselves so he could lick their blood, perhaps as part of a online role-playing game.

Davis was arraigned Monday by District Judge Cheryl Peck Yakopec.

Police allege Davis had sex with a 14-year-old girl in December in a stairwell of the unlocked St. Gertrude Roman Catholic Church along Franklin Avenue when no one else was there.

Davis is charged with statutory sexual assault, corruption of minors and indecent assault.

In a second case, Davis is accused of obstructing justice and hindering prosecution by placing Facebook messages discouraging testimony against him in the other case.

Davis, who police said uses the names “Daryl Nohara” and “Shiki Nohara,” is also accused of encouraging three girls to cut their hands or wrists with a razor so that he could lick or suck some of their blood, and then cutting himself for them to reciprocate.

Police said some people over age 18 allowed Davis to taste their blood, but they aren't charged. They agreed to the action and so it isn't illegal, police said.

Davis' Facebook page, Shiki Nohara, was deactivated on Monday.

Davis allegedly told police that the blood letting and sampling is part of “Mabinogi.”That is described online as a “massive, multiplayer role-playing game” distributed by a South Korean company.

Police talked with Davis and his attorney in January and on subsequent occasions.

He could have left the area but didn't, and he attended his arraignment Monday as required.

For that reason police didn't oppose Davis' release on a $50,000 unsecured bond pending a preliminary hearing in July.
