An Arabic-speaking man shot at a female guard in Bnei Brak, adjacent to Tel Aviv, early Monday morning in what police say apparently was not terrorist attack.

The guard was working at the offices of a company when the attacker arrived at the entrance and shot at her. She was not wounded by the shots but suffered bruises during the incident and was evacuated to the Tel Hashomer Hospital in Tel Aviv.

The guard returned fire from her gun, and a bullet struck the victim, according to preliminary reports, but the attacker was able to flee until police found and arrested him in Ramat Gan.

Police have said the attack was crime-related.
