Police arrested a sixty-year-old man a town near Rishon Letzion late Tuesday for allegedly raping his four daughters over a period of years, since they were children.

The allegations against the man surfaced Tuesday night after one of his daughters, 20, reported to police that her father had been raping her since she was five and that she feared he would harm her younger sister.

Following the woman's report, police questioned her older sister, who reported that she had also been raped by the father.

Police intend to collect testimony from the two other sisters, who they suspect were also raped by their father.

The suspect originally denied the allegations against him, but later admitted to molesting his daughters. The Man will be brought before a Rishon Letzion court for the extension of his remand Wednesday.
