2 detained on suspicion of kidnap, rape of 15-year-old girl

Two suspects have been detained on suspicion of the kidnap and rape of a 15-year-old girl.

According to Hebrew-language media reports, the teen is resident at an educational institution in the north of the country.

A friend told police that the girl had been kidnapped in a car, sparking a police hunt.

Officers found the girl when they located the vehicle. She was with two residents of the southern town Lakiya, who told police that they had taken the girl for a ride.

However, according to the Ynet news site, tests raised suspicion that the girl had been raped.

The detention of the two suspects has been extended while the investigation is ongoing.
