A Detroit man has been charged with raping a 5-year-old girl in his care.

Michael Pankey, AKA Michael Leverette, 37, is now in federal custody after being charged for producing child pornography on Friday, according to Fox 2 Detroit.

He is also charged on four separate counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a 5-year-old girl, three counts of possessing child pornography and indecent exposure, MLive reported.

The mother of the 5-year-old contacted Child Protective Services after she suspected Pankey of molesting her daughter over a three-day period in January. According to MLive, the child told police that the man performed oral sex on her, forced her to shower with him, and inserted objects into her.

Pankey worked at several daycare locations, and police believe that there may be other victims. They are in contact with others who may have also been abused. Anyone with information about possible victims is asked to call the Detroit Police Sex Crimes Unit, 313-596-1958.
