An Israeli model was arrested on Tuesday for domestic abuse, according to Israeli media. 

Responding to a call from the victim's mother, police burst into the home and arrested the model, whose name is yet unknown. 

The police encountered the victim in a state of emotional distress, visibly bruised. During the subsequent police investigation, the suspect claimed the bruises were self-inflicted. 

Israeli media reports that the police petitioned the Tel Aviv District court to extend the suspect's arrest by six days, but the presiding judge only approved an additional day.

The model was previously investigated for fraud, an investigation that ended without criminal charges.
