Eritrean youth indicted for rape of 83-year-old

An indictment has been filed with the Tel Aviv District Court against a 19-year-old Eritrean youth charged with the rape of an 83-year-old woman in Tel Aviv. The State Prosecutor's Office has asked that he be kept in custody until the end of the proceedings.


The youth was arrested on Monday, under suspicion that he raped the elderly woman for hours outside her home. The indictment claims the accused only stopped after the arrival of her family. (Naama Cohen-Friedman)
