The Tangerang Police have arrested a 58-year-old man on suspicion of raping his 15-year-old stepdaughter at his house in Sindang Jaya last Thursday.

“Yes, we have arrested him. He often became aroused when watching his stepdaughter preparing to shower,” the head of the criminal division of the Pasar Kemis Police, First Insp. Ferdo Elfianto, said on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com.
