Attempted Robbery of Kfar Chabad Jewellery Store Owner

Two unidentified masked suspects riding a motorcycle pulled up next to a vehicle being driven by a Kfar Chabad jewellery store owner, and then fired shots into the air in an attempt to intimidate him into stopping, so they could then rob him. However, to their chagrin, instead of stopping, he continued to drive and got away from them.

The store owner then called police and to the community's volunteer security force.  After reporting the incident, the police immediately set out to search the area for the suspects.  According to the Lubavitch.com report, the police initiated a search, but as of yet neither of the perpetrators have been caught.

Police continue to investigate.
