Man arrested for series of sexual assaults on pre-teen girls in Tel Aviv area

A convicted pedophile stalked and attacked dozens of pre-teen girls in and around Holon in recent months, luring them into stairwells and secluded areas, before attacking them. The man, a 52-year-old resident of Ashdod, was finally arrested Monday night, after the Tel Aviv police released a photo and video of the man, and asked for anyone with information about his identity to come forward.

On Tuesday morning the suspect, Uri Rivkin, was brought to the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court where he was ordered kept in custody for five days while police finish building their case against him. In court, police stated that over the course of several hours of questioning on Monday night he did link himself to a number of the attacks, and also performed a re-enaction for police at one of the crime scenes.
