Israel Police arrested a serial pedophile who is suspected of sexually abusing multiple girls between the ages of six and eight, according to an Israel Police spokesperson.

The Bnai Brak police department opened an investigation into the suspect a month ago after receiving a complaint that he sexually abused a girl in the center of Israel.

Over the last month, the police station received multiple other complaints of sexual abuse of young girls against the same individual.
