JAKARTA: A man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of raping his two daughters, after one of the victims ran away from her home in Palmerah, West Jakarta.
Police said the victim ran to her sister's home in Kebayoran Lama, South Jakarta, and the two sisters immediately filed a report with the police.
The older sister claimed she had also been raped by her father when she was aged between nine and 13 years.
West Jakarta Police chief detective Comr. Suyudi Ario Seto said the suspect, Nuropin, 48, regularly raped his daughters since 2004.
