Israeli-Arab man wounds a security guard, steals his weapon

An Israeli-Arab man, in his 20s, was arrested this morning (5.1.17) after snatching a weapon from a security guard at a tour company in the southern Israeli city of Beer Sheba, in what is suspected to be a nationalistically-motivated incident.


The guard went outside to check the mailbox when the suspect jumped him from behind, snatched his weapon and wounded him. He then fled the scene. The suspect then was caught half an hour later by detectives, with the gun, smeared in blood, in the suspect’s possession.
