As an update to our story earlier about the 24-year-old suspect arrested for the rape of the 16-year-old girl in her apartment. More details have emerged. The suspect, who lives next door to the family of the girl, noticed that the front door was open and entered. At the time the 16-year-old was babysitting her younger sister. He took advantage of the situation of the little sister being in the other room, threw himself on the girl, knocked her to the ground and began to assault her. Neighbors who heard the screams called the police who began combing the area and arrested the suspect shortly thereafter.
The suspect was questioned in Beit Shemesh and in the next hour will be brought to the Magistrate’s Court in Jerusalem.
