A knife was found hidden underneath a seat on a bus heading from Shuafat refugee camp to Jerusalem on Wednesday, Israel Police reported.

After passengers debarked at a checkpoint, a bomb-sniffing dog was brought onboard  the bus and found the knife hidden underneath one of the seats, wrapped in both a sock and netting.

A quick investigation revealed that the knife belonged to a 24-year-old passenger who was traveling with a baby.

The man has been taken for further investigation while the baby was returned to his family.
