Arrest in Case of Girl who Jumped from Car


It was disclosed on Friday that police have arrested a suspect on suspicion of an indecent assault on a 16-year-old girl who was found lying on Route 4, next to the Yovelim neighborhood of the northern-central town of Pardes Chanah in July. The girl suffered serious injuries when she jumped from a moving vehicle after she escaped her attacker and has been outspoken about the dangers of hitchhiking during her recovery.

The remand of the suspect was extended Friday for the second time in five days.
