CAMDEN, Del. - A Camden-Wyoming man is being accused of sexually assaulting his teenage niece. Delaware State Police say the victim, who is now 21, came to them about a former relationship that she had with her uncle, 32-year-old Jason Anker.

An investigation showed that starting in October 2008, Anker would pick the female victim, and her siblings from their New Castle County home, and bring them to his house in Camden-Wyoming, where he would take care of them for the weekend. According to the report, Anker started committing lewd acts with the victim, who at the time was 15-years-old. The relationship reportedly went on until the victim was 17-years-old.

On Monday, officers searched Anker's Wynn Wood Circle home, where they say they found teen based pornography, and several computers. Anker was not at the home, but was later arrested, and charged with 1st degree rape, 21 counts of 4th degree rape, and 1st degree unlawful sexual contact. He is being held at James T. Vaughn Correction Center on $265,000 bond. Anker was ordered to have no contact with anyone under the age of 18.
