Following a complaint by the girl, the driver was arrested and interrogated. Out of consideration for the suspect’s family, Jerusalem police allowed him to voluntarilyy report to a police station rather than arrest him at his home in Ramat Shlomo.

The suspect is scheduled to be brought before a judge Monday morning, where police are expected to request an extension on his arrest.
