A woman in Ashdod who suspected her neighbor of having an affair with her husband launched a violent assault over the weekend, using a hammer and possibly a razor blade in the incident, police said on Monday. 

Police received a call from a resident on Saturday who reported that her neighbor attempted to stab her with a razor blade.

Police asked the woman to respond to her neighbor's complaint, but the two women began fighting as soon as they saw one another. 

During the struggle, the assault suspect pulled a hammer from her bag and began striking her neighbor.

In the process of separating the two women, F.-Sgt. Shlomo Ben Lolo became the target of the attacker's rage and suffered a leg injury from a hammer blow. The attacker was arrested and has confessed to assaulting her neighbor, police said.
