The 30-year-old IDF captain accused of sexually assaulting a young woman near the Tel Aviv port overnight Friday denied the allegations against him on Sunday. Overwrought by her ordeal, the young woman - in her early 20s - declined to identify her attacker later in the day. However, police said six witnesses who were at the port that night would be able to tell whether or not it was the officer who assaulted her. The incident apparently occurred after the accused celebrated his bachelor party at a strip club on Friday evening, ahead of his wedding scheduled for this coming Wednesday. The captain's fiancée expressed support for him on Sunday, telling police that he could not possibly have perpetrated the incident.
