PHOENIX -- Authorities said a young Peoria man is in custody accused of molesting his 10-year-old niece.

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials said Anthony L. Auston, 20, is being held on suspicion of five counts of child molestation, two counts of sexual conduct with a minor under age 15 and one count of sexual abuse.

Auston was arrested Monday and booked into a downtown Phoenix jail.

Authorities said Auston is accused of molesting the girl for five months while they lived in the same residence.

The girl told her grandmother, who notified sheriff's officials.
