Police have arrested a suspect who attacked chareidim at Gan Yehoshua in Tel Aviv on Wednesday, the first day of Chol Hamoed Pesach with an iron rod.
The man in custody, a 21-year-old Yaffo resident, allegedly attacked visitors to the park following a dispute involving bicycle rentals. During the dispute the suspect grabbed an iron rod and began striking chareidim in the area. The man was arraigned in the Tel Aviv Magistrate Court on Thursday.
Police believe that the man was assisted by a colleague and one of them used the iron rod to assault the chareidim. No one was in need of medical attention.
