34-year-old pedophile arrested in Jerusalem

A 34-year-old convicted pedophile was under arrest Thursday on suspicion of sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy, police said. The suspect, a resident of northern Israel who was apprehended at Jerusalem's central bus station while serving a suspended sentence, confessed to abusing the boy and five other children, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The child molester had previously served a seven-year sentence for sexually abusing a girl, and was serving a two-year suspended sentence when he was arrested Thursday. The pedophile was remanded in custody by a Jerusalem court for five days.
