A resident of Rehovot was indicted on charges of rape and indecent acts against three minor girls over a period of several years, police announced on Wednesday.

Police first opened an investigation into the case after welfare services reported that sexual offenses had been committed against a 13-year-old girl by a relative of hers for about five years.

The investigation found that the relative would visit the family during the holidays and commit rape and indecent acts against three minors.
