In a strange incident, a young man attempting to gain access to the Temple Mount on Sunday entered into a scuffle with police during which one officer was bit.
The young man, wearing tefillin, apparently neglected to remove the religious garb when passing through the checkpoint and was called back by police.
After ignoring the authorities, the young man continued moving towards the Temple Mount and when approached by the officers began to physically resist them, sinking his teeth into one of the officers in the process.
Officers arrested the assailant and took him to be investigated.
