A man who witnesses said appeared to be an Arab stabbed and lightly wounded a security guard at the entrance to Maaleh Adumim Saturday. The stabber escaped.
The guard, aged about 50, was evacuated so that he could receive medical attention.
About a month and a half ago, the police and Shin Bet arrested a suspect in a stabbing attack in Ramot, a northern neighborhood of Jerusalem. The suspect, a 20 year old student from Beit Iksa, confessed to stabbing a 17 year old Jewish youth and badly wounding him.
