A toy salesman has admitted to raping at least 96 boys, according to Indonesian police.

The 34-year-old man was arrested last week in the capital Jakarta after a complaint was filed by the parents of one of the alleged victims.

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.
