INDONESIA – A toy salesman admitted to police that he raped nearly 100 boys, authorities said on Thursday.
The disturbing admission comes from an unidentified 34-year-old arrested in Jakarata, investigators said. He had been picked up after a complaint was filed by the parents of one of his alleged victims.
The teen, who was also not identified, said the toy salesman had kidnapped him and repeatedly raped him for 45 days while keeping him locked away. The man also forced him to perform sexual acts on other men.
The man told police he victimized 96 boys, aged between 13 and 17, in attacks taking place over a two-year period.
Investigator Reynold Hutagalung said many of the children lived on the streets and were picked up at train stations.
“He kept a list and details about each of his victims,” he said, “including the names of 16 of them.”
The toy salesman, who had four children of his own, said he’d been abused as a child himself. He faces 15 years in prison if found guilty.
