A resident of Rehovot has been arrested on suspicion of carrying out indecent acts against minors in a synagogue while giving religious lessons, police announced on Monday.
An investigation was launched by the Rehovot police station last week after a man filed a complaint alleging that the acts were carried out against three brothers aged 7, 8, and 10. The children were questioned by social workers and provided a testimony that led police to suspect that the allegations were correct. The man was subsequently arrested on Monday morning.
During questioning, the man denied all of the suspicions against him, telling officers, "I didn't do any of that."
He was scheduled to appear before the Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court for a remand hearing.
