Actress Mia Farrow’s brother has been arrested and charged with child sex abuse in Maryland, according to reports from Washington, D.C.

John Charles Villiers-Farrow, 66, was taken into custody on Wednesday. He is accused of sexually abusing several children over a number of years.

Two unnamed men claim they were sexually abused as children from 2000 until 2008 by a neighbour in Edgewater, Maryland. That man has been identified as Villiers-Farrow, according to TV network NBC 4 in Washington.

He surrendered to police on Wednesday and his bail was reduced from an initial $800,000 to $250,000, the Baltimore Sun reported.

He faces counts of perverted practice, child abuse, sex abuse of a minor and assault charges.

Villiers-Farrow is still in custody.
