Alleged Prostitution Ring, Sexual Assault Busted in Upper Darby

An Upper Darby, Pa. woman is accused of forcing a 13-year-old girl to watch a porno movie before sexually assaulting the teen, according to Upper Darby police.

34-year-old Ophelia Cheayee of the 6400 block of Church Lane in Upper Darby allegedly sexually assaulted the teenager after posing as the girl's mother to bring the girl to America.

Cheayee was arrested on December 11 after meeting with police.

This incident may be part of a larger prostitution ring involving Cheayee, according to police.

Cheayee, a native of Liberia, was reportedly bringing young girls from her home country in America by posing as their mother, according to police.

At least five other girls stayed at the Church Lane home, according to authorities.

U.S. immigration authorities are now involved with this case.

Cheayee was arraigned on aggravated indecent assault, obscenity and other sexual materials and corruption of minors charges in district court. She is being held on $100,000 bail pending her December 22 preliminary hearing.
