A 66-year-old Dutch man was arrested in Kenya for sexually assaulting multiple underage girls in the African country. Hans V. is accused of "defiling" three girls, aged 8, 9, and 10 years, in 2016, the Kenyan police said on Twitter.

According to the police, V. was arrested in Kasarani by detectives from the Child Protection Unit on Thursday. He will appear in court on Friday.

In 2002 V. was charged with sexually assaulting a then 14-year-old girl in Kenya, but was acquitted of the crime, NU.nl reports. He ran an orphanage in the African country. Whether the girls V. is accused of assaulting in 2016 stayed in his orphanage, is not clear.
