A suspected head of a neo-Nazi gang who allegedly terrorized homeless people in Petah Tikva in 2007 and filmed the attacks, was arrested in Kyrgyzstan and deported to Israel on Monday.

The suspect, Dimitri Bogitch, fled Israel in 2007 after police began investigating the gang, made up of Russian immigrants, and arrested eight suspects who have all been convicted of racist assault, illegal possession of firearms and obstructing the course of justice.

After becoming a fugitive, police put out an international arrest warrant, resulting in Monday's deportation.

Police arrested Bogitch as soon as he landed at Ben Gurion Airport, and he will appear before the Ramle Magistrate's Court on Tuesday for a remand hearing.

"We will reach any place in the world to catch criminals," said Cmdr. Bentsi Sao, head of the central police district, on Monday. "Civilians can rely on us to protect them."
