A 24-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday night for the alleged rape of a 13-year-old girl, a police spokesperson announced Thursday morning. According to the report, the alleged rape was committed while both were staying in a state-run quarantine hotel for coronavirus patients in Jaffa. After receiving the report, Israel Police launched an investigation analyzing the scene of the incident, while simultaneously using the findings from the medical examination of the girl to support her claims. Israel's National Child Safety Council issued a statement later on Thursday, demanding that the Social Affairs Ministry establishes an independent committee that will investigate the alleged crime, alongside the police investigation, N12 reported.The hotel, designated for youth at risk and welfare recipients, is wired with many security cameras which will hopefully provide police with a clearer picture of the incident. The suspect allegedly tried to rape the 13-year-old, who he met at the hotel, twice over a period of two days, while choking her and inflicting physical trauma throughout. The police also suspects that he convinced the underage victim to consume drugs and alcohol during their stay. Both the suspect and the victim have been diagnosed as confirmed coronavirus patients. On Thursday afternoon, the Tel Aviv District Court extended the suspect's arrest by five days.
