(Drumore) -- A central Pennsylvania man and his two sons have been charged with molesting three girls in their home.

LNP reports a ChildLine tip led to charges against 50-year-old Ephraim Zook and his sons, Ivan and Daniel.

They're accused of molesting the girls from 2005 to 2009 in Drumore Township. The girls were to 14 at the time.

Online court records don't list attorneys for Zook or his sons. All three face a preliminary hearing Aug. 5.

The elder Zook faces the most serious charges including child rape, aggravated indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor.

Twenty-four-year-old Ivan is also charged with child rape and three counts of indecent assault. His 27-year-old brother is charged with indecent assault and unlawful contact with a minor.
