A Filipino male nurse hired to care for a 12 year old boy from Holon was arrested Sunday night over allegations that he abused the child sexually. Last week the mother, who has been having suspicions that the caretaker was abusing her child for quite some time, decided to file a complaint with police. The child, suffering from a severe degenerative disease, was interrogated by a special children interrogator specializing in persons with disabilities. The suspect denied the allegations and was brought to Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court, where police requested to extend his remand by five days.
