Who's cutting off Bnei Brak girls' hair?

Seven Bnei Brak girls complain of youngster cutting off their hair and fleeing. Zaka volunteers search for youth fearing he may harm other girls

Mystery in Bnei Brak: Zaka volunteers have announced a manhunt in the city Thursday, as they search for a haredi youth, believed to be 13, who allegedly cut off the hair of at least seven young girls, ages 8-12.


According to witness accounts, the boy seems to carry a pair of scissors with him. Upon encountering a girl whose hair is in a ponytail – and after making sure the coast is clear - he grabs her head, cuts off her hair and runs away.


The girls' families, and other fearing their daughters' safety, called on Zaka to find the youngster, who was photographed in the act Thursday afternoon.


"So far, we know of seven cases," Motti Boskin of Zaka told Ynet. "We have volunteers tracking him down, and hopefully we'll find him soon… this isn't our normal line of work, but given the sensitive nature of the case, we're more than happy to help."


The Dan district police said only three of the girls filed official complaint and that an approach was made to the community leaders, asking the rest of the girls to come forward.
