Another Arrest Made In Chol Hamoed Pesach Hit & Run In Jerusalem’s Ramot Neighborhood


Police detectives arrested another suspect, a young man in his 20s, in a hit-and-run accident that took place during Chol Hamoed Pesach in the Ramot neighborhood of Jerusalem, where the boy Binyamin Bigelizen was hit and seriously injured.

The police said Monday that following strenuous police interrogation, they found the hideout of the 20-year-old suspect in a hit-and-run accident that took place on April 21, and police raided a hiding place in the center of the country where he was hiding and he was taken into custody. The two will be arraigned in traffic court where their detentions are likely to be ordered held without bail.

The police searched for Netanel Sandrosi for several days on suspicion that he was the driver of the Volvo that hit the boy and then fled to Givat Ze’ev, abandoned the vehicle and fled until he turned himself in to the police. In his interrogation, Sandrosi denied the suspicions against him and claimed that he was not the driver of the vehicle at the time of the accident. After Sandrosi’s arrest, the police arrested another suspect last Wednesday on suspicion of helping Sandrosi escape after the accident.

In the hospital, doctors continue to fight for the life of Binyamin, 11, whose condition has been defined as critical.

His name for tefilos is Chaim Binyamin ben Shoshana Raizel bsoch cholei yisrael.
