Tzvika Cohen is still in a coma and on a respirator and is being treated in the neurosurgery ward of the intensive care unit, a spokesman for Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital says.

Cohen was unarmed at the time of the attack early Friday morning. On Sunday, his suspected assailant, a Palestinian from a neighboring town who worked in the mall, was apprehended after being turned in by his uncle.
