Police arrested a 21-year-old resident from one of the settlements around Jerusalem in connection with attacks against Peace Now activist Hagit Ofran, who found graffiti spray painted around her apartment reading "Hagit (of blessed memory) you're dead!" and "Kahane was right."

The man was arrested late Monday night and has refused to cooperate with the investigation by exercising his right to remain silent. Police spokesman Shmuel Ben Ruby said there is "solid evidence" against the man, including the fact that he was arrested before for vandalizing the Peace Now offices in the German Colony neighborhood of Jerusalem as well as a light rail station.

He was scheduled to have a remand extension on Tuesday afternoon in the Jerusalem Magistrate Court.
