An 25-year-old IDF engineering officer from Holon was arrested on Thursday for allegedly having sex with under-aged girls he met on online forums.

The suspect, Cpt. Ayal Nahum, was reported by police to have contacted over 4,000 girls online over the course of six years and managed to engage many in sexual conversations, convince some to photograph themselves naked and send him photos and even meet perhaps dozens of girls for real, consensual sexual encounters.

Police reported that Nahum had not been cooperating with the investigation.
