J'lem man charged with calling woman 'whore,' spitting

The Jerusalem District Court charged Ze'ev Frank with harassment on Sunday, after he was arrested on Thursday for calling a pedestrian a "whore" and spitting on her. He is also being charged with assaulting the officers who arrested him while physically resisting arrest.
According to the indictment, the woman was walking in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea She'arim when Frank, a resident of the city, harassed her. When three police officers who were already in the area proceeded to arrest Frank, a group of haredim (ultra-Orthodox Jews) attacked the officers, throwing rocks and iron poles at their vehicle.
