Police arrested four residents of Petah Tivka on Sunday on suspicion that they harassed and threatened an Israeli-Arab woman and her daughter, in order to force the woman to leave her Petah Tikva apartment. The arrests were announced by police on Monday.

The suspects, Gad Alfor, 58, Michael Dabol, 21, and two women ages 21 and 24 whose names are under gag order, are alleged to have thrown a stun grenade at the woman’s apartment. One of the male suspects was also arrested last week for allegedly intentionally driving his motorcycle dangerously close to the woman while she was walking in the street.

Alfor and Dabol had their remands extended by three days in the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court on Monday while the two female suspects were released on bail and forbidden to come within 200 meters of the complainant.
