On video: a young man from Be'er Sheva was convicted of sexual offenses against children - the parents burst into tears (Yoav Itayel)
A prosecutor's statement was submitted this morning (Sunday) against two suspects aged 19 and 15 on suspicion of raping a 28-year-old young woman, mentally challenged from Tel Aviv, in an abandoned building in Jaffa.
The prosecutor's office intends to file an indictment against them in the coming days as well as a request for their arrest until the end of the proceedings.
About a week ago, the two were arrested together with a young man and another boy aged 17 and 21, residents of Tel Aviv, on suspicion of the act.
The police representative said at the hearing on the extension of the suspects' detention that "this is a very serious case, I have not met in such a case. The suspects committed serious sexual offenses against the complainant. There is a reasonable suspicion that the offenses were committed."

On the other hand, the lawyer of one of the older suspects, Samson Weiss, denied his involvement in the incident and claimed that he was at home at all during the hours when the rape occurred.
According to him, there are also security cameras that can prove his claim: "He insists that he was not present at this event, was not with this complainant, did not have sex with her, and does not know her at all."
The judge who extended the arrest of the suspects wrote that "This is a serious and difficult incident. According to the suspicion, he was joined by several participants, the suspect is an adult and at least two others who are minors, and then committed acts to the point of abusing the complainant. According to what emerges from investigation materials, it is about someone who was mentally ill or disabled intelligently, which makes the act even more serious. It should be noted that the complainant's testimony is detailed and detailed in the part of the suspect before me with specific details regarding his actions."
