Police said he was intoxicated and involved in a street fight with other youths, in which a nearby vehicle sustained heavy damage. Police were called by local residents to the scene.

When the defendant noticed the officers, he threw rocks at them and cursed at them. After being arrested, he told a policeman, “I’ll kill you, cut you in half, and make you disappear,” and then spat in all directions, police added.

Police have asked the court to keep the youth in custody until the end of legal 
proceedings.

“We are prepared for the summer, and we will not allow public disturbances and threats to the safety of the public,” police said in a statement.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, two drunk youths went on the rampage in a Rehovot police station after being arrested, police said.



The youths were apprehended after entering a gas station in Rehovot, drinking several beers and then allegedly attempted to steal a vodka bottle.
