Police arrested a taxi driver from central Israel
for allegedly raping two foreign workers
and performing indecent acts on a third.
The suspect has been remanded for an additional seven days by the Ramla
Three weeks ago a Filipino
foreign worker filed a complaint with the Ramla police claiming she was raped by the taxi driver.
According to the complaint, she was riding in the suspect's vehicle when he veered off the road to a secluded area, where he threatened and raped her.
Shortly after the complaint, investigators found an Eritrean
foreign worker who shared a similar story.
A few days ago another complaint was filed by a Russian
immigrant, who claimed the suspect failed in his attempt to rape her.
The man, arrested on Monday, denied the charges but was linked to the women involved. Police are currently trying to locate more foreign workers who may have been assaulted by the suspect.
