A 38-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting two women in 2006 and 2014, Channel 12 reports.

The man, a resident of Qalansawe, is suspected of raping one woman 14 years ago, when she was 16 years old, and attempting to rape another young woman six years ago.

He allegedly picked up both women in his car in the Sharon region, northeast of Tel Aviv, drove them to a nearby wood and there assaulted them.

Police recently obtained new unspecified evidence that led them to the suspect, the report says.
