A 40-year-old Beit Shemesh man remained in police custody on Sunday after being arrested on Thursday for falsely claiming to be a security guard in an alleged attempt to sexually assault several women. According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, the unidentified suspect has served prior prison sentences for sexual assault convictions.

“He put up a fake ID on numerous Internet sites, presenting himself as a security official, and tried to persuade women to meet him in order to eventually have sexual contact,” said Rosenfeld. “We found the individual and searched his vehicle, which contained a number of cellular phones, walkie talkies, and flashing security lights. He dressed the part in order to have women meet with him.”
