FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- A man has been charged with five counts of child molesting and 5 counts of child seduction for allegedly abusing a girl from the time she was in fourth grade until she was 18.

Police responded to a report of child neglect from an area hospital in December 2011. That is when the victim told them that Jeffrey Buzzard, 43, had started molesting her when she was in fourth grade and began having sex with her when she was in sixth grade. She told police that he continued until June 2011 when she was 18 years old.

According to our partners in news, The Journal Gazette, the victim told police that Buzzard threatened suicide when she told him she may report the abuse.

Buzzard denies the allegations. He is currently being held at the Allen County Lockup.
