Jerusalem Police said that a 50-year-old man and his 14-year-old son were arrested on Wednesday for brutally abusing children in their building.
Police said that the incidents began a year ago after a five-year-old girl complained to her father that her neighbor attacked her in the stairwell of the building in which they live.
The parents did not believe their daughter because the neighbor was a respected ritual scribe and brushed it off, but the incident happened again two months ago.
Also, a boy, 11, who had been visiting the son of his uncle, was brutally attacked by the same man.
The worried parents began asking the neighbors about the scribe and shockingly, numerous parents revealed that their little children were also brutally attacked by the scribe.
According to police, the suspect used to lure little children to his basement by offering them sweets. Once the children reached the basement, the children were severely exploited.
Police also said that the scribe’s 14-year-old son participated in the attacks.
Police said that a total of seven children came forward with abuse allegation against the scribe.
