The Straits Times reports that the man is though to have lured the girls’ with cash and mobile phones to his villa in Perancak village, Jembrana.

According to The Jakarta Globe, the Institute also identified one other school-aged girl who also claims to have been a victim of the man.

"We're still investigating this matter and collecting more evidence," said Suhariyati.

Chairman of the National Commission for Child Protection, Arist Merdeka Sirait, said that the man could be charged with human trafficking. The police could also begin an investigation before a report was filed. "The police can't let this case slide, especially since it appears to have caused quite a commotion in the local community," said Sirait.
