A Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court extended on Tuesday custody for a sexual assault suspect until August 11.

The suspect, a homeless man, was arrested in Tel Aviv on Monday night on suspicion of sexually assaulting four women in protest tents in the city's  Rothschild Boulevard in days.

The suspect, 56, originally from Baka al-Ghrabiya, is suspected of entering tents in which women slept alone and assaulting them.

All of the women targeted by the suspect woke up and successfuly fought off the suspect, police added.

In his last alleged attempted attack, a woman called for help and members of the public called in the police, who captured the suspect.
