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.
