A man from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya was arrested on Thursday for suspicion of attempting to stab a woman outside the Har Hatzofim hospital in Jerusalem.

The 50-year-old man was seen with a knife, chasing a young woman who ran towards the hospital's security guards.

A taxi driver who saw the event unfolding restrained the man along with hospital security guards until police arrived at the scene.

The man told police that he had recently been released from prison and that rumors were spread about him, saying he was a collaborator. In order to save his reputation, the man decided to stab a Jewish woman, he told police.
