"The first thing I did was call my dad and tell him, it looks like another cop and I caught Benny Sela," Ashraf Abed, one of the police officers who apprehended convicted serial rapist Benny Sela on Friday evening, told an interviewer from Channel 10. Abed, who has served with the police not quite two years, said that it was a "great feeling" to have laid hands on the prisoner whose escape prompted the largest-ever manhunt in Israel's history.
