Yeshiva World News reports a man today attempted to run over a senior staff member at Yeshiva Ner Yisroel on Yeshiva Lane. The suspect is a former student while the victim is the principal of the high school.

The Baltimore Police Department is investigating the incident.

Sources told YWN that at around 7:45AM, a staff member had gotten into his car outside the yeshiva, when a man rammed his vehicle into his car. The victim managed to get out of his car and run inside the yeshiva building.

The suspect then continued his rampage, driving at high speed while chasing another senior high school staff member with his vehicle. Eyewitnesses say that he missed striking him by inches.

Police responded rapidly and apprehended the suspect and took him into custody.

While the identity of the suspect has not been released, sources told YWN that he is a former student, and the man he chased is Rabbi Simcha Cook, principal/Menahel of the high school.
