Four ultra-Orthodox men were arrested by Jerusalem police in the past week on suspicion of sexually abusing children in their neighborhood between the ages of three and 13 over the past two to three years. According to the police, the men would lure the children into their apartments using promises of candy, money, or movies, and then would abuse the children.

The four men, who were brought to the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court on Thursday afternoon for a remand extension hearing, denied the charges. Police suspect one of the men of serial paedophilia, and believe he may have abused a large number of haredi children in his neighborhood. The investigation was ongoing.
