An IDF soldier who allegedly used his smartphone to expose his penis to female soldiers has been charged by a military court with sexual harassment and indecent acts, Channel 2 reported on Wednesday.
According to the allegations, the accused would block his cell phone’s number and use the phone’s video call function to call female soldiers. In most cases, the women wouldn’t answer or would hang up immediately after his intent was clear. But when they did pick up the video call, the accused’s member would appear on their screens.
In one instance, the defendant allegedly called female coworkers from his base and showed them his lower torso and penis. In another case, he photographed himself while handling his private parts and sent the pictures via his phone to a girl who was serving in the army with him. The girl opened the message from the soldier when her peers were around her.
The indictment filed at the Northern District military court claimed that the soldier committed the acts for personal arousal and sexual satisfaction.
It was not clear from the report how the accused was caught.
