Police arrested three Arab youth, one from east Jerusalem and two from the Palestinian territories, after they tried to break into an apartment in Jerusalem neighborhood of Kiryat Moshe on Sunday night. A resident of the area had called the police to report unusual sounds in the area, and when police arrived at the scene they found evidence of a break-in.

They noticed what looked like two haredi Jews fleeing from the area and chased after them and arrested them. During the arrest, the cell phone of one of the subjects rang and police determined the caller was a third suspect. They pinpointed his location in Gival Shaul and arrested him as well.

The suspects were dressed as haredi Jews there were labels in the clothes with the name of a Jewish resident in Har Nof. The man said that his clothes had been stolen from his apartment two weeks ago. Police are investigating whether or not the three youth may be responsible for other break-ins in Jerusalem. They are being held in custody until their indictment on Tuesday.
