Police thwarted a terror attack in Jerusalem's Nof Zion neighborhood after receiving reports of a suspicious man eyeing Jewish houses in the area, Border Police reported Friday.

Officers in the area arrived to the scene and started questioning the man, a 21-year-old resident of the city's Jebl Mukaber neighborhood, whose right hand was hidden behind a fence.

When asked to show what was in his hand, the suspect refused but asked to be able to return home to Jebl Mukaber.

An officer grabbed the suspect's arm and it turned out the man was hiding a knife inside his sleeve.
