State police said they have arrested a 55-year-old Butler County man on charges that he repeatedly raped an underage female relative in her early teen years and then carried on the relationship for two decades, fathering four of her children.

The Chicora man faces 71 charges, including rape, statutory rape, indecent assault, aggravated indecent assault and incest, according to state police.

The man was being held Saturday in the Butler County Prison on $500,000 cash bond, according to the prison.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is not naming the man to avoid disclosing the name of his accuser.

The assaults began when the woman was 12 or 13 and occurred at "various locations in Allegheny and Butler counties," state police said Saturday.

State police did not return a call for comment.

Public records show the man has no criminal record in Pennsylvania nor in Mahoning County, Ohio, where he lived for a period of time.

According to court documents, he has children by at least two different women, both of whom petitioned the Court of Common Pleas in Allegheny County for child support in the 1990s.
