Posted: Updated:
FAYETTE COUNTY (KWWL) -

A Westgate is behind bars tonight after police say he sexually abused a teen and held her against her will.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says 34-year-old Justin Cavnar is in the Fayette County Jail on a $10,000 bond. A week-long investigation from the sheriff's office resulted in charges that include Felony Sex Abuse in the Third Degree, Felony Assault With the Intent to Commit Sexual Abuse and False Imprisonment. The third charge is a serious misdemeanor. 

Cavnar is accused of sexually abusing the 15-year-old in June, holding her against her will during the alleged assault. A week later, police also say Cavnar is accused of trying to assault the victim again. Cavnar was taken into custody today.

The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says more charges could be coming in the case, and the Iowa Department of Human Services is involved in the investigation.
