Argentinian man arrested after using daughter as a sex slave

A MAN accused of raping his daughter for 22 years and fathering eight children with her has been arrested in Argentina.

In a case that has been compared to the abuse Elizabeth Fritzl suffered at the hands of dad Josef in Austria, Domingo Bullicio - known to friends as Vernacho - was detained in the northern city of Loret after a month-long manhunt.

The 56-year-old is accused of turning his daughter Antonia into a sex slave when she was just nine-years-old after his wife left him with their three other children.

He fled the rundown property in Villa Balnearia in Santiago del Estero after the victim, now aged 31, managed to escape and ask authorities for help.

Pictures on Argentinian media show him with his head covered in handcuffs in the back of a police truck after his detention.
