IDF chief's guard now suspected of 'attempted sodomy'

Court extends Captain A.'s remand by four days at consent of his lawyers, while suspicions against him reduced due to additional findings received over past few days
The Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court on Sunday extended the remand of Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi's security guard, who is suspected of sexually attacking a young woman at the Tel Aviv Port about 10 days ago, by four days.
A police representative expressed his hope that the investigation would be completed by Wednesday, allowing the police to submit a prosecutor's statement ahead of an indictment.
The suspicions against Captain A. were reduced Sunday to "attempted sodomy" instead of sodomy, following additional findings received over the past few days.
The suspect's lawyers and the police reached an agreement on the four additional detention days. The police also agreed to the attorneys' request to hold additional inquiries, including a further questioning of witnesses and checking whether A. acted under the influence of drugs.
The police representative told the court that he hoped the investigation would be completed by Wednesday, but stressed that the police maintained the right to ask for further detention on remand.
The officer's lawyers said that he still denies the allegations, despite the fact that traces of DNA from his body were found during an examination of the complainant.
