A 33-year-old Rehovot divorcé was raped in front of her two daughters overnight Sunday, according to a police complaint she filed early Monday morning. The man, who was carrying a knife, threatened the woman and took a large amount of money, then proceeded to attack her before fleeing the scene. Apparently, he entered the apartment through a window, and police suspect he may have been watching the family and knew who lived in the apartment. The woman told police that while the masked man was raping her, her daughters woke up and walked into the room, Channel 2 reported. The attacker, who had an Arabic accent, told the girls to stay away from him. The woman sought medical treatment at Petah Tikva's Wolfson Hospital. Police opened an investigation into the event though no arrests were made.
