A 44-year-old Brownwood man faces multiple charges in the alleged sexual abuse of two teenage female relatives.

Robert Elwood Thornburgh was booked into the Brown County Jail Thursday on multiple counts following a Brownwood Police Department investigation, jail records state.

Thornburgh is charged with sexual assault of a child; continuous sexual abuse of a child under 15; indecency with a child by contact; and interfering with child custody, jail records state. He is also being held on a parole violation warrant.

Thornburgh remained jailed Tuesday in lieu of bonds totaling $235,000.

One of the teenage relatives was impregnated, Assistant Police Chief James Fuller said.

"This all came about with a (relative's) outcry," Fuller said. "I believe it was to a counselor."

Other details were not immediately available.
