Mea Shearim man indicted for sex abuse
By Etgar Lefkovits
Jerusalem Post - December 1, 2005

A 20-year-old Israeli resident of Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood was indicted Thursday in the Jerusalem District Court on sexual abuse charges, police said.

Omer Yaish is suspected of sexually molesting at least seven haredi children, aged nine to 15, in the neighborhood over the last three and a half years.

The suspected child molester told police investigators that he would lure the children into his home by telling them that he was a doctor and could evaluate their medical and social condition by checking their sexual organ, Jerusalem police spokeswoman Sigal Toledo said.

Meanwhile, in a separate sexual molestation case, a 15-year-old Jerusalem Arab teen was under arrest Thursday for allegedly sexually abusing, together with a second suspect, two 8-year-old children in the institution they are living in on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

The suspect, who cannot be named because he is a minor, was remanded in custody for four days Thursday by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court.
