JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Police and emergency medical responders were alerted early Tuesday morning to a 47-year-old chareidi avreich who had been stabbed on the bridge connecting Givat Shmuel to Bnei Brak. The man suffered moderate to serious injuries and was transferred to hospital. Police are searching for the suspect in the attack.

The avreich told police that he had suddenly been stabbed by an Arab who fled the scene. Police are investigating if the motive of the attack was nationalistic.

Avi Fishman, the United Hatzalah medic who arrived first at the scene, related that “I gave emergency treatment at the scene to a man who was found bleeding and bruised. He said that he had been violently attacked.”

Daniel Barak, another United Hatzalah medic at the scene, said that “after we gave him initial emergency treatment, he was transferred to the Tel Hashomer hospital in moderate condition.”

People in Bnei Brak were concerned that the Arab is walking freely in the area and may attempt another terror attack. “We’re afraid, the terrorist is wandering around free, he could pop up anywhere and stab more civilians. We are praying to Hashem that he will be caught soon,” said David Weissfish, a resident of Bnei Brak.
