Sydney, Mar 29 (ANI): After Austria and Italy, another man has been arrested for allegedly fathering eight children with his daughter.
Arcedio Alvarez, a Colombian man, is said to have abused his daughter, now in her thirties, since she was less than 10 years old.
The man was arrested on Friday in the town of Mariquita, after a complaint was filed by his daughter.
Her first pregnancy happened when she was only nine years old.
The woman had a total of 14 pregnancies from the relationship, although six ended in miscarriages. The offspring are now aged age one to 19.
According to Colombian media, the woman decided to file a complaint against her father when she saw television reports about Austrian Josef Fritzl, who locked up his daughter for 24 years and systematically raped her. She gave birth to seven children during that time.
"She started to reflect on the issue when she saw the case of the Austrian 'monster'. She realised that what her father was doing to her was not normal," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted a relative, as telling reporters.
The woman said she decided to file suit after her father beat up two of her children, aged two and five.
Recently, Michele Mongelli, the 'Italian Josef Fritzl' came to the surface.
He has been accused of keeping his daughter prisoner and raping her for 25 years. (ANI)
