Another Jerusalem Child Attacked
Following up on reports of increased attacks against children in frum areas of Yerushalayim released earlier this month, there appears to have been another attack, against a 15-year-old chareidi female.
The victim was on her way to school in the Beis Yisrael neighborhood when assaulted by a male dressed in chareidi garb. She told her teacher of the attack when she arrived at school, appearing shocked and in pain. The principal notified the victim’s parents immediately.
According to Kikar Shabbat, quoting a family member of the victim, the attacker came out of an alleyway in the neighborhood. The victim explained he looked chareidi but she did not recognize [him]. He attacked her and fled.
It appears family members feel that since she is unable to identify the attacker, it is pointless file a complaint with police.
