      A central district attorney filed this morning in Lod's District Court for the indictment of Rami Salameh, a 20-year-old man from the Arab-Israeli city of Qalansuwa, for attempted murder which he committed at a branch of the "Aroma" cafe chain in the central Israeli town of Kochav Yair.

      According to the indictment, on September 1, 2013, a conflict arose between the defendant and the complainant while at work regarding work procedures and expected requirements of the defendant at work.

      At around 3 pm, the complainant entered the office located behind the kitchen of the branch in order to make a reservation on the computer. After making sure that the complainant was alone in the office, Salameh followed the complainant into the office, where he was sitting facing the computer with his back to the door, taking with him a 25 cm kitchen knife.

      The defendant approached the unsuspecting man and stabbed him 5 times in his upper back, left ear, and chest. After the victim yelled for help, the defendant fled the scene, waving a knife threatening two other employees who worked in the kitchen of the branch.

      As a result of the attack, the complainant suffered from deep cuts to his left ear and upper back and was evacuated to a nearby hospital.
