VALPARAISO | A Valparaiso man was taken into custody Wednesday night on accusations of sexually abusing a young relative.
Jeffrey Zbyrowski, 41, faces two B felony counts of rape, two C felony counts of incest and two D felony counts of criminal confinement, according to Valparaiso police.
The purported victim's mother and grandparents told police Oct. 28 an incident occurred earlier this summer between the victim and Zbyrowski.
Valparaiso police said they investigated and learned of two separate incidents when Zbyrowski sexually battered the victim.
Valparaiso police Sgt. Mike Grennes said the case is still being actively investigated.
Charging information was not released Thursday, but is expected to be made public on Friday.
