An Australian man has been arrested for allegedly fathering four children with a daughter he repeatedly raped for more than 30 years, local media reported Thursday.

The man, in his 60s, began the abuse in the 1970s when the daughter was 11 and continued almost daily until 2007, said the Herald Sun newspaper, which first reported the case. The assaults resulted in four children, all with birth defects, the paper said. One later died.

Authorities in Victoria would not confirm details of the case to CNN, citing an overarching court gag order that bars the release of any information that may identify the man. A clerk with the Melbourne County Court would say only that the man was arrested on charges of rape and incest.

"We are going to look into it," said a spokeswoman for Victoria's Premier John Brumby. "But at this stage when nothing's been proven, we are very restricted in what we can say." The suspect denied raping his daughter but was arrested after DNA tests revealed otherwise, the newspaper said.
