Jerusalem Police on Friday arrested an additional suspect in the kidnapping and multi-million dollar ransom attempt of a prominent local businesswoman and her housekeeper, which was foiled just over two weeks ago when police located the two women and their captors in Petah Tikvah.

While three suspects are currently in custody, the fourth, a private investigator in his 40s from the Tel Aviv area, was arrested and his remand extended for six days. Police said the investigation is still ongoing in the case, which saw the two women snatched from a luxury apartment in the capital’s Mamilla Quarter on April 11.
