A teacher at a Bnei Brak yeshiva was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of sexually assaulting several of his underage students over the past few months, Tel Aviv police said Monday.

The man, a 43-year-old Ashdod native, is suspected of sexually assaulting several of the pre-teen and teenage boys while he was teaching at the yeshiva.

The man's arrests comes only a couple days after he was expelled by the school, and follows a number of complaints police received from welfare authorities about the teacher.

The suspect reportedly linked himself to some of the crimes, but the investigation is still ongoing, police said Monday.
