Apparently, he had several Muslim accomplices, but so far, none of them have been arrested.
INN According to the indictment filed by prosecutors at the Ofer military prison outside of Jerusalem, the suspect, a resident of the Palestinian Authority-controlled town of Deir Qaddis west of Ramallah and north of Modi’in Illit, had been employed at a school in an Israeli town in the Binyamin district of Samaria.
The suspect had worked as a janitor at the school, and met the victim while working there. He befriended the girl, the indictment claims, speaking with her and giving her candies.
One day, however, the suspect kidnapped the girl, taking her by force to a house in the area, where he forced her down and raped her.
During the rape, the young girl screamed and called for help, but was held down by several other Arab Muslim men who helped the suspect rape her. Afterwards, the suspect let the girl return home. “They told her ‘You deserve this, and if you want to leave here, don’t tell anyone’,” the victim’s parents revealed, according to Channel 12.
Attorney Haim Bleicher from the Honenu organization, who is representing the family, said in a statement Sunday:
“This was an extremely cruel and shocking incident, during which other people were present, apparently other Palestinian workers who humiliated the girl and mocked her and helped the accused,” said Bleicher, calling the accused and the other workers who took part in the assault “a group of scum who went against all human values because the victim is Jewish.”
