The Central District Attorney filed an indictment in the Central District Court on Wednesday, charging a 24-year-old man with sodomizing a homeless man after strangling him to unconsciousness.
According to the indictment, Alexander Korol went into the Petah Tikva building in which the complainant was sleeping, and woke him up.
Allegedly, Korol offered the complainant NIS 20 to perform a sex act on him, or to sell him drugs.
When the complainant refused, Korol took a shoelace, put it around the complainant's neck and strangled him until he lost consciousness, the indictment said.
When the complainant passed out, Korol allegedly sodomized him.
Korol is also charged with illegal possession of two brass knuckles.
