JAKARTA, Indonesia —He was supposed to bring joys to kids, but he in-advently or rather premeditatedly chose to despoil them. This is surely the end of the road for a toy salesman in Jakarta who has admitted to raping at least 96 boys, according to Indonesian police.
The 34-year-old man was arrested last week in the capital city of Jakarta after a complaint was filed by the parents of one of the alleged victims. According to Indonesian officials, the man mainly targeted boys hanging out at train stations,
Police investigator Reynold Hutagalung said the suspect confessed during interrogations to raping at least 96 boys between the ages of 13 and 17 over the last two years.
Most of the victims were street kids found hanging out at train stations, Hutagulang said.
The accused, a father of four, could face 15 years behind bars if found guilty.
To me, I think life could serve him better.96 years to represent each and every child e despoiled, nothing could be better than this. Iam not judging him, he has already judged himself.
