Beit Shemesh: Father held for sexual abuse

A 30-year-old Beit Shemesh man was under arrest Tuesday for sexually molesting his two young children over the last two years, police said. The suspected child abuser is believed to have molested his children in his home, in a neighborhood playground and in the community's mikveh, or purification bath. He was to be brought to a Jerusalem court Tuesday for a remand hearing.
