A 16-year-old Jewish resident of Jerusalem was remanded Saturday in connection with the alleged Thursday assault incident which left 28-year-old Ibrahim Abu Ta’a with a broken leg.

The youth was arrested Thursday, along with another teenager suspected of involvement in the incident. He was remanded until Monday.

Ta’a told Maariv that he was attacked on Thursday night in Jerusalem’s Katamon neighborhood when a group of passers-by apparently thought that he was sexually assaulting a female colleague he had driven home.
