A 70-year-old murderer and pedophile was detained at Kfar Saba's Meir Hospital on Thursday for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl he was supervising after she attempted to commit suicide.

A doctor in the hospital said he caught the suspect sexually assaulting the girl while she was recovering, and promptly called the police.

The suspect, who works at the Meir Hospital as a guard, had previously been charged for murder, rape and indecent assault within his family.

The police are currently investigating whether the suspect has supervised minors in the past.
