A 40-year-old Tel Aviv resident was apprehended by the police for allegedly clandestinely recording the intimate body parts of a 12-year-old girl at Gordon Beach. The investigation revealed suspicions of the man having taken photos of other young women as well.
The incident occurred around noon on Monday when a patrol officer from Tel Aviv's Lev station, while stopping to purchase coffee, observed the man standing closely behind the girl in the café queue. Holding a bag, he approached her discreetly from behind.
Upon noticing the suspicious behavior, the vigilant officer, suspecting the man of concealing a camera aimed at the girl, approached and swiftly apprehended him. Seizing both his cellphone and the bag, the officer thwarted the suspect's attempt to flee. Further inspection revealed a functional camera in the suspect's possession.
The suspect and the camera were promptly handed over to the police for thorough investigation, raising concerns that he filmed other unsuspecting young women. The suspect appeared before the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court, which decided to release him to house arrest.
