A Border Policewoman thwarted a potential stabbing in downtown Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon, after she stopped an Arab terrorist with a weapon. 

The soldier first flagged the Palestinian Arab woman after she was spotted walking on Dorot Rishonim street in Jerusalem and acting suspiciously. 

The Border Policewoman, keeping a safe distance, pulled the woman aside and searched her purse - and found a long screwdriver. 

Under interrogation, the Palestinian Arab suspect admitted she had been stalking the street with intent of carrying out an attack.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
