Teen arrested on suspicion of assaulting soldier in capital's Mea Shearim neighborhood

Police have arrested a teen on suspicion of involvement in the assault on an IDF soldier and his father in Jerusalem's Haredi Mea Shearim neighborhood last week.


The suspect attempted to flee from his home's window during the arrest, but was caught. He will face a remand extension hearing later
in the day. He is the second suspect to be arrested in relation to the attack.


The incident took place last week, when the soldier and his father entered the neighborhood with their vehicle and hard-line Haredim surrounded them, attacked them and damaged the vehicle. The soldier and his father, meanwhile, suffered light contusions.
