Two Jerusalem Arab brothers were under arrest Monday for allegedly raping their 14-year-old step-sister for the last eight years, police said. The two suspects, aged 20 and 24, are believed to have started raping their step-sister when she was just 6 years old. According to police, at the time the older brother caught his younger brother raping their step-sister and removed him from the room, only to begin raping her himself. One of the suspected brother rapists was remanded in custody for three days Monday by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court, while the other, who is suspected of raping is step-sister "only three times" was placed under house arrest, police said. The two brothers will be indicted on rape charges by the end of the week.
