A 25-year-old Beit Shemesh man was arrested on Thursday for allegedly repeatedly sexually molesting a 15-year-old male teen in the storage room of their apartment building, police said. The suspect, who was apprehended after the teen's parents complained to police, denies the charges, but police have "solid evidence" against him, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. Police suspect that the man sexually molested other male minors as well. The alleged sexual molester was brought to a Jerusalem court Thursday for a remand hearing, where he was expected to be remanded in custody through the duration of his trial.
