Police say they have arrested a man in his 20s from the Tel Aviv suburb of Holon on suspicion of severe sex offenses committed online against a 16-year-old girl from Finland.
The investigation began after Helsinki filed an extradition request, according to police.
The probe yielded suspicions that the man committed many sexual offenses, including indecent acts, rape and violation of privacy.
The suspect’s remand has been extended until Sunday. Prosecutors have filed an extradition petition and a request to keep him in detention until a decision is made on whether to extradite him.
