An indictment was filed on Sunday in the Tel Aviv District Court, charging a Bnei Brak resident with sodomy and indecent assault against three boys aged under 16.

According to the indictment, the defendant, who cannot be named, molested the minors as they immersed themselves in a Bnei Brak mikva [ritual bath] and as they showered beforehand.

The defendant also forced the minors to perform sex acts against their will, the indictment alleges. The Tel Aviv District Attorney's Office also served a request to remand the defendant for the duration of the proceedings.

According to that request, the defendant was arrested after a member of staff at the mikva noticed he had come to the mikva just before one of the minors. The witness informed a volunteer in a local Haredi organization, who held the defendant at the mikva until the police arrived.
