The incident began at about 6:00PM when the boys phoned police, telling them they encountered three Arabs and the situation quickly deteriorated into physical violence. Two of the youths fled, telling police the Arabs abducted the third.

A police chopper was immediately dispatched to the area. About an hour later, the student was found back in yeshiva unharmed. Police are now investigating if the report they received was legitimate or if the youths fabricated the entire incident.
