A 24-year-old Harrington man who is currently active duty in the United States Air Force and is currently stationed at Malstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Montana, has been extradited back to Delaware to face multiple counts of rape.

Division of Family Services contacted Harrington Police last month about a sexual assault complaint that occurred on Weiner Avenue; through further investigation, police determined that prior to joining the Air Force in 2009, Jonathan Karasevich, who was living in the house, sexually assaulted the then 6-year-old victim on multiple occasions.

Karasevich is charged with 16 counts of 1st degree rape, continuous sexual abuse of a child, sexual solicitation of a child and endangering the welfare of a child. Karasevich is now behind bars at SCI, being held in lieu of $167,000 bail.
