A 21-year-old Sudanese man allegedly broke into an apartment in the Yad Eliyahu neighborhood of Tel Aviv early on Wednesday morning, stabbing and lightly wounding a woman in her thigh, who tried to prevent him from attacking her daughter. Police believe that the man's motive was robbery.
The woman's husband intervened, according to police, subduing the assailant and injuring him in the process.
MDA paramedics treated the suspect at the scene and brought him to the hospital. Police who were not releasing the suspects name said the suspect was unemployed and of no fixed address.
