JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli police in Jerusalem detained a Jewish man last week on suspicion of raping a Palestinian woman in Jerusalem, a police spokesperson said.
Luba al-Samri, Israeli police spokesperson for Arabic media, said in a statement that a 40-year-old man was detained last Thursday.
The victim told police that she met the suspect in the Armon HaNetziv neighborhood in southern Jerusalem after responding to an advert about renting an apartment.
Upon arrival at a bakery in the neighborhood, the man led her to a stockroom where he raped her.
The suspect forced the woman to record on videotape that they were having consensual sex.
The woman immediately went to a hospital following the assault and reported the attack to Israeli police.
Police said that the man is suspected of having committed several similar attacks in the past.
