Jewish Youths Sought in Attack on Arab Cabbie in J'lem

Police are looking for two Jewish youths in a Sunday-evening attack on an Arab taxi driver in the Gilo neighborhood of Jerusalem.

The cabbie drove them to Gilo, where they asked him to turn onto a side street so they could pick up their girlfriend. They then allegedly held a knife to the cabbie's throat and he suffered a light cut to the hand when he fought them off. The youths fled and the cabbie was treated at Sha'arei Tzedek Medical Center and released.
