An 18-year-old sought an excuse to beat up
on a 14-year-old from his own community:
An 18-year old haredi man was charged with assaulting a 14-year old girl in Jerusalem Thursday the haredi Behadrei Haredim news website reported
The alleged assault took place last Wednesday, in the Mekor Baruch neighborhood of Jerusalem. The suspect, a resident of Romema, also located in Jerusalem, allegedly approached the girl and told her she had a cockroach on her clothes. He offered to help her get the bug off and proceeded to attack her.
The Jerusalem District Attorney's office filed an indictment against the suspect Thursday, along with a request to keep the suspect in custody until the end of the trial.
The Jerusalem Magistrate Court, however, decided to release the suspect under restrictive conditions.
The prosecution sought to delay the release and filed an appeal against it. At present, the suspect remains in custody.
And kept in custody he should be. It's not clear from this report, but it wouldn't be shocking if his attack had been of a sexual nature, one more reason he should be kept behind bars.
