An anonymous complaint to the Israel Police has reportedly sparked fears that a five-year-old girl was raped in the haredi Wast Bank city of Modiin Illit last week, but haredim have refused to cooperate with the police investigation and neither the girl or her alleged rapist has been located, Ynet reports.

The girl reportedly received medical treatment, but members of the local haredi medical organization have also refused to cooperate with police.

Despite this lack of cooperation, the town is reportedly rife with rumors about the rape.

Police warned several haredim that they would be charged with obstruction of justice if they continue to refuse to cooperate.

Sometime in the past two weeks a man lured a five-year-old girl he saw on the street to a storeroom at a nearby synagogue. He allegedly sexually abused the girl for two hours.

The girl was allegedly treated by haredi medics and brought to a hospital in central Israel. But police could not find any evidence that a five-year-old girl had actually been treated at that hospital, and at least one of the hospital workers who were questioned by police denied having treated the child.

“Everyone is shocked. Some rabbis even discussed it over the weekend… One of them urged us to keep children safe and report anything of the sort. Nobody wants to protect such criminals, but parents know that in the haredi public the one who will be tarnished by this is the girl. She will not be able to get married and this will ruin her entire future. I have reason to believe that (her parents) took care of her and probably also took her to therapy, but they wouldn’t complain, so everyone who knew about the case simply respected their wishes,” a haredi resident told Ynet.

Other residents believe the rape never happened.

But another resident told Ynet that he had personally been order not to cooperate with police or the media.
