Video emerged on Tuesday evening of a security guard who was stabbed in the upper torso on a Jerusalem light rail car in the Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood earlier in the day by two youth.
According to Police spokeswoman Luba Samri, the guard was accosted by two Palestinian minors, ages 12 and 13, one of who stabbed him with a knife before the guard shot and disarmed him.
In the video the youth can be seen sitting quietly observing the guard before their attack.
“Passengers on the train took control of the second attacker until the rapid arrival of police,” said Samri.
The shot assailant was seriously injured.
Pat Station Commander, Chief Superintendent Avi Cohen praised the security guard and train passengers for their quick actions.
“The rapid determination of the guard and tram passengers prevented more innocent people from being harmed,” he said in a statement.
The unidentified security guard was treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics before being transferred to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in fair condition, Sami said.
