An 83-year-old woman was raped for hours in the courtyard of her apartment building near the Central Bus Station in south Tel Aviv by a young Eritrean migrant, police announced on Monday morning.

Police said they were able to find the assailant a few days after the rape and on Monday morning he was brought to a remand extension at the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court where they requested to extend his remand until the end of his trial.

Speaking to reporters on Monday morning, Yiftach sub-district commander Superintendent David Gez said that the rape took place between 10 a.m. and around 12:30 pm ten days ago in a courtyard which was hidden from the street. The victim was reportedly dragged into the courtyard by the man, and was found there by relatives hours later after the man fled the scene.
