The suspect, a father of three and a senior hitech executive, pretended to be a young girl and entered social chat rooms, according to police.

He allegedly built up a network of false identities to link up with young girls, whom he then persuaded to send him nude photos of themselves.

Police were alerted to the online activities by a suspicious parent.

“This is someone who appeared to be an ordinary member of the public, but who was doing unspeakable things,” Insp. Arnon Hagig, a detective in the central police district, told Channel 2.

The suspected pedophile confessed to the acts during questioning.

The Kfar Saba Magistrate’s Court extended the suspect’s custody by eight days.
