Last updated on Thursday, March 29, 2012

(JENNINGS COUNTY) - A 19-year-old Jennings County man faces charges of rape and incest in the sexual abuse of three girls, police say.

State police began investigating last week after the Jennings County Division of Family and Children reported an allegation of sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl.

Investigators said they determined there were two other victims - a 13-year-old and 14-year-old girl.

Benjamin D. Bowling, 19, was arrested Wednesday on preliminary charges of incest and rape and is being held in the Jennings County Jail.

Police say more charges against Bowling are possible.
