Police arrested a 41-year-old man from the Palestinian Authority
on suspicion of molesting his 12-year-old daughter, who lives with her mother in Israel.
It is suspected that the man, who is married to an Israeli, raped and molested the girl. He was arrested while on the run.
According to the police,
the father would enter Israel illegally and during that time saw his daughter. During those encounters he would rape her.
An investigation was launched two months ago after police obtained information on the abuse from social services. A child investigator interviewed the girl, who told her of the molestation, and came to the conclusion she was speaking the truth.
It took police some weeks to track the man down and arrest him. He is suspected of sexual assault of a minor and infiltration. Police are asking that he be remanded in custody.
