Remand Extended in Teen Hitchhiking Abduction Case

The Haifa Magistrates Court extended by a week, on Monday, the remand of Baka Al-Gharbiya resident Akram Abu-Much in the case of a 16-year-old religious high school girl who was found unconcious on a highway in bad condition, earlier this year. Since then, the victim has been outspoken on the dangers of hitch-hiking.

Abu-Much was arrested three weeks ago on suspicion of abduction to injure or commit sexual or indecent acts with a minor.
