A Nazareth teen whose eyes and face were burned following an acid attack last month, was also the victim of sexual and physical abuse by the two main suspects for several months, police reported on Wednesday.

The new development came to light on Tuesday, after the 16-year-old victim told police that the two men had also subjected her to months of abuse before the attack last month. The victim had only awoken from her anesthesia last week.

On Wednesday, the two suspects will be brought for their third remand extension, and in the coming days police expect they will be indicted for charges that now include rape and aggravated sexual assault of a minor in addition to the other charges already in the case.
