Police rescued a 19-year-old woman from sexual assault by several African migrants in Tel Aviv early on Tuesday, a spokeswoman said.

Officers in a police car, out on a regular patrol in south Tel Aviv, spotted Eritrean and Sudanese nationals surrounding the Bat Yam woman in a parking lot. After approaching the group, police saw that the men were sexually assaulting her, the spokeswoman added.

Police arrested four suspects, though the remainder managed to flee.

"We suspect that they also robbed her," police added.

All suspects are in their twenties. They are due to appear before a Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court for a remand hearing.
