A 32-year-old Israeli pedophile who was released from jail six months ago was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly sexually molesting several children in a Jerusalem suburb, police said. The haredi suspect, who was apprehended Tuesday after one of the children filed a complaint with police, denied the allegations against him. The young victim told police that the man sexually abused other children as well, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said, adding that police were searching for the other abused children. The alleged child predator previously served a 42-month sentence in jail for similar crimes. He was remanded in custody for nine days on Wednesday by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court.
