Cafe staff then asked them to leave. As they proceeded to make their way out of the premises, one of the waiters allegedly directed a comment at the boys, prompting a brutal physical assault against him.

During the attack, one of the youths allegedly produced a knife and stabbed the waiter.


Paramedics rushed the victim, aged 22, to Assaf Harofeh Medical Center in Tzrifin, where he was listed in serious condition.

Police units arrived at the cafe within minutes, found the youths nearby and arrested them.

Police are concerned over the lethal mix of binge drinking and knife possession among youths, and have increased patrols in bar and club areas in an effort to prevent random alcohol-fueled violence, which is more common in the summer.
