On Wednesday, January 9, 2018, during the evening, police received a report of stabbing and assault in a yeshiva in southern Jerusalem. A police force arrived, and an initial investigation revealed that, following a quarrel between two bochrim about the use of clothes, the suspect stabbed the victim with a sharp object, hit him and ran away. The victim was evacuated for medical treatment. He is in stable condition.
Police investigators and members of the forensics laboratory arrived at the scene and began a lengthy investigation, gathering evidence and finding advanced technology. The suspect was found hiding in a house in the south of the country. Police arrested the suspect.
On Thursday, the suspect, in his 20s, was arraigned and the court extended his remand until January 13th to permit investigators to continue probing the case without his interference.
