John Charles Villiers-Farrow Mugshot - P 2012

Two victims, who say they were neighbors of John Charles Villers-Farrow, told police they were abused over an eight-year time span.

Actress Mia Farrow's brother, John Charles Villers-Farrow, 66, was arrested on child sex abuse counts, according to a report from NBC 4 Washington

He was arrested after two men told police in August 2012 that they were neighbors of Villers-Farrow and were sexually abused over an eight year span when "they were between nine and sixteen years old," the NBC O&O reported.

A neighbor confirmed to a WBAL-TV 11 reporter that Villers-Farrow is the brother of Mia Farrow. 

Villers-Farrow surrendered to police on Wednesday and his bail was reduced from an initial $800,000 to $250,000, the Baltimore Sun reported. He's facing counts of perverted practice, child abuse, sex abuse of a minor and assault charges, according to multiple outlets.
