Central District prosecutors submitted indictments, Tuesday morning in the Lod District Court, charging a 38-year-old resident of Netanya with aggravated assault on a minor relative in his custody with intent to do bodily harm. The charges stem from an incident on November 25th, in which the accused slashed his seven-year-old niece's throat.
The man had taken the girl for a trip with the permission of her parents. He claimed that when he got to his apartment, he heard voices telling him to kill someone. The girl required surgery for her wounds.
