The Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court has granted permission to release the name and photo of a suspect accused of committing sexual violence against minors under 18 years old.

Israeli police are investigating allegations of harassment and sodomy involving students at educational institutions in both France and Israel. The suspect is said to have committed these acts while living at the educational institution.

Due to the severity of the crimes, authorities have opted to publish the name and photo of the suspect: Nathan Yosef Levy, 27, a resident of Itamar.

Those with information about the suspect's offenses or who were victims themselves are urged to contact the Modiin Illit police at 08-6447200, the general police control room at 100, or any police station.
