Haredi teenager who cursed at woman on bus in Ashdod was arrested

This article gives some clearer info on how the police responded to the case of a woman who was harrassed by Haredis on a bus in Ashdod/Safed a few days ago:
In yet another return to the controversy over the exclusion of women, Ashdod police detained over the weekend a 17½-year-old haredi (ultra-Orthodox) youth after a young woman complained of threats and insults on an Egged bus ride from Ashdod to Safed.

Ashdod police are still looking for another suspect who allegedly participated in the incident and Safed police are also attempting to locate additional suspects. [...]

When Kantman arrived in Ashdod, the police were waiting and she was asked to point out the suspects. "I only identified one of the young men, and he was taken in for questioning." The young man confessed and was released on bail. [...]

A number of similar incidents have occurred in Israel over the past two years, including one on a bus from Jerusalem to Ashdod and another in Rishon Lezion, both in December 2011. These and other related incidents have brought the issue of ultra-Orthodox communities' behavior into the public eye.
And, they've pretty much proven that Haredis can be as vulgar and disrespectful of civility as anyone else. I'm glad to read that the police did arrest the suspect, who's asking for serious punishment for disturbing the peace.
