One reported an assault in 1982, when she was 12 years old. Police said the woman claimed to be staying with family when a male relative touched her sexually.

Another family member also reported a similar incident that happened in 1984, when she was also 12 years old, police said.

An investigation was launched and resulted in two charges being laid.
