Israeli Man Arrested for Having a Harem

JERUSALEM (AP) - Police have arrested an Israeli man who
maintained a harem and fathered dozens of children with the women he kept. The man is held on suspicion of enslavement, rape and incest.

Police accuse Goel Ratzon of keeping 17 women in a state of
near-total obedience in apartments in the Tel Aviv area.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says they bore him 37 children, some of whom are also his grandchildren. Police say Ratzon controlled the women's money and sometimes abused them if they challenged his control.

So far, no charges have been raised against Ratzon. He has been
investigated in the past, but never charged.

Rosenfeld said Thursday authorities are looking into whether
other women and children can be linked to the case.
