Soccer coach arrested for molesting dozens of boys

A 26-year-old soccer coach from Ashkelon was suspected of molesting approximately 70 of the young boys whom he coached. The suspect admitted to committing countless sexual acts against children and teenagers since he was 14 years old. Police sources revealed they feared that the eventual number of victims may reach 60-70, as the investigation spreads to the suspect's other workplaces. Asst.-Cmdr. Yoram Levi of the Southern District Police revealed on Monday that the coach had pages in which he would write his victims' names, sexual acts, and a rating of their performance on a scale of 1-10, including various comments. The suspect was caught two weeks ago and was placed under house arrest. Thus far 28 boys and teenagers were located, though only two agreed to testify, Army Radio reported.
