Police said that the baby's mother was holding her child and walking with her husband on Yesod Hamaala Street near the entrance to the bus station when a man approached and stabbed the baby.

Police said the man who stabbed the baby was very drunk and mentally disturbed, and that the incident was not personal or believed to be racially motivated. 

The 50-year-old man fled the scene on foot but was arrested shortly thereafter and was being questioned by police at the Yiftach station.
