(CNN) An Indonesian woman was held captive in a cave for 15 years by a local spiritual healer who regularly raped her, police say. He would show her a photo of a man named Amrin, who he claimed was a jin, or genie.

During the day the woman was kept in the cave to avoid detection, but at night she was brought up to a hut near the shaman's own. The man has been charged with offences under Indonesia's child protection laws, which carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Tolitoli Police Chief M Iqbal Alqudusy said the man had been raping the girl since she was 13 and would show her a picture of what he said was a jin who possessed him.

They allege she was brought to the man's house at night but during the day was forced to stay in the small prison-like cave.

"The victim seems to have been brainwashed, making her afraid to run away and afraid to meet other people because she was being watched by a jin," a local resident named Sugeng told the Jakarta Post.

The suspect faces up to 15 years in prison if found guilty.
