A Shin Bet security guard was arrested on Thursday night on suspicion of raping a 20-year-old woman in Tel Aviv. The young woman's family told police that an unknown man entered their home on Thursday and raped their sister. The victim's brother came to his sister's aid when he heard screams coming from her room. He reported that the assailant attacked him as well. The rapist then fled the apartment and police conducted a search after him. After combing the area, they found the suspect in a nearby street and took him into custody. Investigators said that the rapist's mode of operation suggested that this was not the first time he had committed this kind of crime. They noted that the method was similar to other unsolved rape cases in the area, Israel Radio reported. The Tel Aviv Magistrates' Court issued a gag order on all of the suspect's identifying details and extended his remand by six days.
