Police arrest teen for attacking Arab cab driver in Jerusalem last night
Police arrest a teen for his involvement in an attack on an Arab cab driver in Jerusalem last night amid a right-wing protest near the Knesset.
According to police, a 17-year-old resident of Jerusalem was arrested on suspicion of being part of the attack. A family member lied to police about his whereabouts when they arrived at the home, police said, and the suspect attempted to flee via a balcony, but was caught.
Police say further arrests in the incident, which they deemed to be racist in nature, are expected.
