A Federal Way man was charged with three counts of child rape, molestation and one count of incest for allegedly raping a young family member on several occasions over a six-year period.

Crescenciano Bautista, 38, was charged on Feb. 10 in King County District Court. The victim’s mother also faces charges of tampering with a witness.

The girl reported to school authorities that Bautista allegedly molested and raped her since she was in the fifth grade. She said he would make her get into his bed, according to probable cause documents.

The victim also reported the alleged rape to her mother on five separate occasions. Her mother told police that she did not believe her daughter, although on one occasion she witnessed Bautista allegedly behaving inappropriately near her daughter, the documents continue.

Bautista is being held on a $500,000 bond.
