The video of the incident has been sent to the police, who arrested the suspect.
A resident of southern Israel was arrested on Sunday after being caught on camera performing a sexual act in front of a 6-year-old child.
The incident was recorded by a resident of Netivot using his cellular phone camera. He later sent the video to the police and reported the incident. In the video, the suspect can be seen standing behind a concrete structure in a local amusement park with a little girl, his pants pulled down.
Ephriam Buzaglo, a bystander, then runs toward the man yelling, “What are you doing? Come here!” The suspect can be seen zipping his pants and running away.
“I ran to him and beat him up,” Buzaglo said. “Then I called the cops who came immediately.” The girl, he said, did not seem to understand what was going on. “She told me he had promised to give her treats.”
A statement by the police said, “Following a report about a man seen committing an indecent sexual act on a 6-year-old girl, police forces were called to the scene and arrested the suspect after a chase. He was taken to the Netivot police station and will be remanded into custody tomorrow.”
