Israeli police in Jerusalem arrested two Arab residents of the capital, on suspicion they committed sex crimes against an Israeli teenager whom they met online.

The suspects, both men in their 20s from the predominantly Arab neighborhood of Shuafat in northeast Jerusalem, are accused of performing sexual acts on a 15-year-old Israeli Jewish girl whom they met online, via the Instagram social media service.

The two men are slated to be brought before a judge in the capital Monday for an extension of their arrest.

The investigation into the incident are ongoing.
