Police: Pa. man fathered 4 children with relative

BUTLER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a man fathered four children with a relative whom he repeatedly raped and assaulted over more than 20 years.

State police arrested the 55-year-old Butler County man on Saturday. He is charged with dozens of counts of rape, indecent assault and incest.

The offenses allegedly occurred from 1992 until August of this year in various locations in Butler County and neighboring Allegheny County, where Pittsburgh is located.

The Associated Press is not naming the suspect to avoid identifying his relative. The AP generally does not identify victims of sexual assault.

The man, who is from Chicora, was being held at the county prison on $500,000 bail. It was not clear whether he had an attorney.

Police could not immediately provide more details on the case.
