BUTTERWORTH: A 65-year-old man was arrested for allegedly committing incest with his daughter and raping his teenage stepdaughter for the past three years.
The man is said to have committed the acts with his 10-year-old daughter and 16-year-old stepdaughter at their house in Tasek Gelugor.
The younger girl is partially blind and has learning disabilities.
According to the police report, the girls’ mother only knew about the younger child’s alleged incest after her special needs teacher noticed behavioural changes in her.
Seberang Prai Utara OCPD Asst Comm Noorzainy Mohd Noor said the teacher then informed the 47-year-old mother, who noticed that the girl had also been showing withdrawal symptoms, preferring to stay in her room and sometimes speaking to herself.
“The girl later told her mother that her father has been committing incest and raping both her and her stepsister for some time whenever the mother was not around.
“He also threatened her not to inform the mother about the incident,” he said.
The husband was arrested after the mother lodged a police report.
