A 44-year-old Rishon Lezion clothing store owner was arrested on Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of sexually assaulting women while they were trying on clothes in the shop's fitting rooms.

The man denied all of the charges leveled against him.
Police will seek to extend his remand during a court session on Wednesday.
