23-year-old from Kiryat Gat charged with the kidnap and rape of a minor

The State Prosecutor's Office filed an indictment on Friday against a 23-year-old from Kiryat Gat for the abduction and rape of a 10-year-old two weeks ago in Beit Shemesh. 

According to the indictment, the defendant and another minor with whom he is in a relationship offered the 10-year-old a ride while he was waiting for a bus.  At a certain point, the 10-year-old opened the car door, fled and called for help. 

The prosecution asked the court to mandate the defendant's arrest until legal action against him concludes.
