Police in the city of Banjarbaru in South Kalimantan recently arrested two men suspected of sexually abusing a minor, who is the daughter of one of the suspects.
According to the police, the victim’s father, a 50-year-old man who is identified by his initial S, began raping her since 2017, when she was 16. At the time, S had just divorced his wife and the victim decided to stay with him.
One day, S found out that the victim was no longer a virgin after she claimed that she was raped by her uncle. Instead of reporting the uncle to authorities, S threatened his daughter by saying that he would tell her mother’s family about the alleged rape — which the victim was greatly ashamed about — and then repeatedly raped her himself.
Not long after, the victim became pregnant, with S suspected of being the father.
However, the victim hadn’t found a boyfriend two months into the pregnancy, which led to S setting up his daughter with his friend, a 57-year-old man identified by his initial M.
“S then asked the victim to ‘serve’ M, who is his friend, so S can demand responsibility from M for impregnating his daughter,” Aryasyah said.
M fell for S’ trap and slept with the victim on at least two occasions.
However, soon after, the victim had a miscarriage. S then wanted to continue having sex with his daughter, but she refused and ran away from the house as she could no longer take living under the same roof as her father.
Authorities were soon notified about the alleged multiple rapes and arrested both S and M. Both were charged with violating the Child Protection Law and could face up to 15 years in prison each.
