Spanish police have arrested a British man suspected of raping his step-daughter when she was nine years old and years later abusing her daughter as well, authorities said Friday.

Police arrested the man, named as L. Morris, 66, in Los Gallardos near the southern Spanish city of Almeria, under a European extradition warrant after he moved to Spain from Kent in England where the alleged rapes took place.

"He is accused of four counts of rape and 12 counts of sexual abuse of his step-daughter when she was nine years old. The acts continued until she was 13," a police statement said.

"Years later", between 1993 and 1995, "the suspect also abused the daughter of this person when she was just six," it added.

Investigations started last year when both women reported the alleged abuse.
