Three more suspects in the aggression against Argentina’s Chief Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich were arrested by the Buenos Aires police on Monday.
The man suspected to be the leader of the gang Maximiliano Ovalle, alias "Max Coco," was among those taken into custody, the army radio reported.
Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich, 62, was robbed and beaten up in his home in the capital city of Argentina on February 25. He suffered from serious injuries including several broken ribs.
From the first moment, the case was investigated as a possible anti-Semitic crime. While they were beating him, the assailants told Davidovich that they knew he was a rabbi.
The latest wave of arrests brings the total number of suspects taken into custody to five.
The police have also recovered part of the stolen goods, including cash, jewelry and a pen with Hebrew scriptures.
