BRIER — A Lynnwood man was arrested early Sunday after police alleged that he sexually abused a teenage relative for several years.

The man, 37, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of incest, child molestation and rape.

The Herald is not naming the man to protect the victim’s identity.

The victim, now 19, told police the alleged attacks started when she was 15, and when the two lived at the same home in the Brier area.
