Jerusalem police arrested two Jewish men who sprayed Arab taxi drivers with pepper spray after a wedding on Tuesday night in Talpiyot.

According to police, the two left the wedding and decided to take a taxi to the Western Wall. When they got in the taxi and realized the driver was Arab, they sprayed him with pepper spray at close range and left. They then hailed another taxi, and when they realized the second driver was also Arab they sprayed him as well. One of the drivers required assistance from Magen David Adom paramedics, who brought him to the hospital with light injuries.

Police arrested one of the suspects, who refused to cooperate with the investigation and exercised his right to remain silent, and are still searching for the second suspect.
