A 40 year-old prisoner fled from his court hearing on Wednesday afternoon and escaped police custody after jumping from a second story bathroom window. The prisoner, Shai Cohen from Holon was at the Jerusalem rabbinical court for a hearing for refusing to grant his wife a divorce, escaped around one pm. Dozens of police arrived on the scene and a helicopter circled over-head to try to locate the prisoner.
