Tel Aviv rape suspect's DNA matches
DNA evidence has linked the 21-year-old Palestinian man suspected of subjecting a young couple to a prolonged rape and sexual assault to the scene of the crime, senior law enforcement sources confirmed Wednesday.Well now that's basically a confession of guilt. And he should be given a sound belting for what he put the poor girl through.
Police arrested the West Bank resident in Tel Aviv this week on suspicion of following the couple to the Gan Ha’ir parking lot, brandishing a knife and forcing them into the parking lot’s bathroom, where he allegedly forced them to carry out sexual acts on one another and raped the 17-year-old girl.
The DNA development came as police were set to hold a lineup to see if the couple could identify the suspect.
The suspect, from the Nablus area, who cannot be named due to a media ban, denied raping the girl and said he did not carry out any sexual offenses.
He has also denied being in possession of a knife. However, the suspect did say he stole the couple’s cellphones.
