Suspect Arrested in Attack on Bnei Brak Guard


A suspect was arrested, Monday morning, in connection with a pre-dawn attack on a security guard in Bnei Brak. The suspect was arrested after he hid in bushes next to the Ayalon shopping center in nearby Ramat Gan. Police took him in for questioning. Their preliminary assessment is that the incident was criminal and not terrorist in nature.

A man entered an office in Bnei Brak and fired at the security guard. She returned fire and apparently wounded him but he was able to flee. The security guard was taken to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv with light wounds from the shooting.
