Jerusalem - A 40 year-old Haredi man was remanded on Sunday following reports by witnesses that he approached and spat on a teenage girl wearing pants while she was walking with her family.
YNETNEWS.com (http://bit.ly/1Pk2W2b) reports that Yosef Chaim Jabali was ordered held until late Monday by a Jerusalem Magistrate Court judge on a suspicion of assault charge stemming from the incident.
