LEBANON, Ore. -- Lebanon police are currently investigating a man after he was charged with two sex crimes involving a minor.

Detectives told KEZI they started investigating 20-year-old Benjamin Jazmin in June of last year after receiving reports he abused a girl under the age of 16.

They said their investigation showed the level of contact between Jazmin and the young girl was criminal.

He was arrested Thursday and charged with third-degree rape and third-degree sex abuse for crimes police said he committed between June and September 2019.

"Right now we don't know of any other victims," said Detective Sgt. Taylor Jackson with the Lebanon Police Department. "But we are exploring that possibility. It is something we are looking into. You know, these cases can be very lengthy and time consuming, so it's still an active investigation we're working on."

Jackson also said that Jazmin has no previous criminal history in the city of Lebanon.

Police asked that if you know of any other victims, please call the Lebanon Police Department.
