Taiwan Quick Take: Trucker arrested for abuse

Police have arrested a truck driver who allegedly molested nearly 200 teenage girls by posing as a model company scout and offering them jobs, the Chinese-language China Times said yesterday. The suspect, surnamed Chen, 43, was arrested on Wednesday when he was trying to approach a teenager he had allegedly molested two months before. The girl alerted police, who arrested Cheng, the daily said. Police said they found 193 pieces of paper in Cheng's bag, each bearing the name and telephone number of a teenager he had allegedly abused. Cheng reportedly told police that he had a sexual impulse whenever he saw large-chested women. He reportedly began to recruit "models" three years ago. Police said he forced the girls to pose naked for photos and touched many of them.
