She was stabbed and rushed to Ichilov Medical Center in critical condition.

The attacker snatched her bag and fled on a moped.

A police source told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday evening that one possibility being investigated was that the bag was stolen as part of an attempt to portray the assault as a robbery.

“This is one possibility under investigation,” the source said, adding that forensic evidence could support that theory.

Additional details cannot be published at this time.
