Frustrated by a lack of police action in the massive pedophilia case in Jerusalem's Nahlaot neighborhood that involved at least ten perpetrators and more than 100 children, some residents resorted to vigilante justice, police reported on Wednesday night.

During the day police arrested a man and a woman accused of attacking a 70-year-old woman two months earlier. The couple suspected the woman of being involved in the pedophile ring that terrorized the neighborhood. The male suspect was remanded until Friday and the female suspect remanded until at least Thursday.
