A Valparaiso man was being held at the Porter County Jail on charges of rape, incest, and criminal confinement, Valparaiso Police said.

Jeffrey Zbyrowski, 41, was taken into custody on Wednesday night, police said.

Two counts of each charge were filed against Zbyrowski, stemming from “two separate incidents,” police said.

An investigation was begun on Oct. 28, after the mother and grandparents of a girl related to Zbyrowski reported “an incident that occurred earlier this summer,” police said.

Rape is a Class B felony punishable by a term of six to 20 years; incest, a Class C felony punishable by a term of two to eight years; and criminal confinement a Class D felony punishable by a term of six months to three years.
