Jerusalem police said Tuesday that a 17-year-old haredi Jewish youth was arrested on suspicion of attacking an Arab cab driver three weeks ago in the Mea She'arim neighborhood of the capital. Police said that more arrests were expected in connection to the incident, and that the investigation was ongoing. The incident took place on Malkhei Israel Street during the peak of the riots in the haredi neighborhood against the opening of the Carta parking lot on Shabbat. The youth will be brought to the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court for a hearing to extend his remand by three days.
