Police have launched a manhunt for a suspect armed with a hammer who attempted to sexually assault a 14-year-old girl in the hallway of a residential building in Rishon Lezion on Tuesday. The girl, who lives in the building, was about to enter an elevator, when she was suddenly set upon by a suspect aged around 17, who began fondling her breast and kissing her. The girl kicked her attacker twice in the groin, and he attempted to strike her with the hammer. A neighbor who happened on the scene fought off the attacker, who fled the building.
