Police in Puerto Rico have accused a 65-year-old man of raping his young granddaughter and having two children with her.

Angel Manuel Natal Bracety was charged Wednesday and is being held on an $800,000 bond.

It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. Natal told reporters outside the courthouse that he did not have anything to say about the case.

Prosecutors accused him of sexually assaulting his granddaughter starting when she was 12 years old until she turned 15. Authorities say the alleged assaults began in 2008 in the central town of Cidra.
