Police arrested a man who they say savagely assaulted Rav Zalman Grossman at Kever Shimon Hatzadik in Yerushalayim on Wednesday.
Police say the man is a 30-year-old resident of Bnei Brak.
The suspect told the judge that they have the wrong person, but the judge said video surveillance as well as other evidence shows that police nabbed the correct person.
The judge ordered his remand in police custody until Monday.
As YWN had reported, Rav Grossman told a young child who was making alot of noise and being disrespectful at the kever to please be quiet and act appropriately. Seconds later, a young man, reportedly a member of the Shuvu Banim Cult, led by Rabbi Eliezer Berland, ran into the Kever, and began punching Rav Grossman repeatedly in the face, kicking him, and even throwing chairs and Shtenders at him.
People who were at the Kever were unable to stop the man, as he overpowered them all and continued his savage attack.
Rav Grossman was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for multiple traumatic injuries as well as serious facial trauma.
