Palestinian Arab arrested in brutal Tel Aviv rape

Most of the stories mention that Arab forced the victims to have sex, and then raped the woman himself while forcing her boyfriend to watch, but they leave out this disturbing tidbit from the below story:

     ‘…when they were in the public restroom, the man surprised them and forced them to have sex at knife point. The man then tried to sexually assault the boyfriend, but after failing in his attempt, he brutally raped the young woman instead for more than an hour, after which he fled.

The boyfriend said the attacker punched him every time he asked for him to stop. “I could have fought him, but I thought he could get angry and slam her head against the wall,” he said. Police have collected DNA samples and finger prints from the scene.

Had there been a donkey present, he’d no doubt have tried to have sex with it, too.

Scumbag.

Israel Hayom – After three days of an intensive manhunt, police arrested a man on Monday suspected of perpetrating the brutal attack on a young couple in the Gan Ha’ir (City Garden) parking lot on Friday. The suspect, a 21-year-old Palestinian resident of Nablus, was picked up by police as he walked along Ibn Gvirol street, not far from the scene of the attack.

Four other men were arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of having aided the alleged attacker after the crime. Police are investigating whether the four participated in the crime itself.

Police were said to have known the address of the alleged attacker and staked out his home, but were not able to apprehend him. At one point, they entered the man’s home and searched it for evidence. Detectives believe the man was a drifter who moved frequently, making it harder to find him.

On Friday night, a security guard at the Gan Ha’ir parking lot heard screams and called the police. When they arrived, they found a woman, 18, and her boyfriend, 17, who said they had been sexually and physically assaulted by a man described as belonging to an ethnic minority.

According to the couple, they were sitting on a bench near Gan Ha’ir when they noticed a man watching them. They decided to enter the Gan Ha’ir parking lot and, when they were in the public restroom, the man surprised them and forced them to have sex at knife point. The man then tried to sexually assault the boyfriend, but after failing in his attempt, he brutally raped the young woman instead for more than an hour, after which he fled.

Police conducted a manhunt and were able to identify him based on fingerprints he left at the crime scene. Investigators said the man was a known criminal.

“As soon as we were informed of the crime, we began an intensive search for the man. With much pride I can say that at 8:45 p.m. we arrested the suspect. Four other suspects were also arrested,” Yarkon police commander Brig. Gen. Yoram Ohion said on Tuesday.

The suspect apparently lives near Nablus and has been working at various jobs, including kitchen work in different restaurants in Tel Aviv. The four other suspects were being questioned for their alleged role in the crime, as well as for additional crimes in the area.

A police spokesman said police might put the suspect in a lineup in coming days for the victims to identify him. The spokesman said police hoped to complete the investigation within three days.
