Police arrest pedophile who sought to lure girls through ads

Police arrested a 37-year-old man from Netanya on Sunday after a newspaper editor contacted law enforcement saying the suspect had attempted to publish ads to lure in underage girls. During his interrogation, police found pedophilic images on Netanel Sa'ad's cell phone. Going through the suspect's phone book, police made contact with two minors, who said Sa'ad had committed sexual offenses against one and attempted to rape the other. Sa'ad's custody was extended by three days on Monday and he will appear before a Netanya Magistrate's Court on Wednesday for an additional custody hearing.
