A senior doctor was arrested Monday on suspicion of carrying out an indecent act outside a preschool.

According to police, the man is suspected of “touching his genitals while in his car next to a preschool.”

The 55-year-old doctor is a resident of Haifa, where he is employed by the city’s Rambam Medical Center, according to Hebrew-language media reports.

Police said they’d opened an investigation. The man was arrested a few hours after the alleged act and will appear before the Haifa’s Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
