Hadera Man Arrested on Suspicion of Drugging, Raping 13-year-old Girl

19-year-old suspected of soliciting girl to use drugs, sexually exploiting her.

A 19-year-old Hadera man was arrested Sunday for allegedly soliciting a 13-year-old girl to use narcotics, and sexually exploiting her along with several other men.

Because of the victim's age, the suspect will be charged with statutory rape.

The Haifa Magistrates Court Monday extended the suspect's remand by five days.

The affair was exposed by the police in recent weeks.

Police forces are searching for several other suspects accused of having intercourse with the victim.
