A 26-year-old Israeli man was stabbed in the back and moderately wounded in central Jerusalem by his ex-girlfriend Wednesday, in a feud over ownership of the one-time couple's dog, police said. The couple had recently decided to break up. The early-evening attack took place after the man came to their Jerusalem flat and took out the dog for a walk. His 26-year-old girlfriend, who thought he was taking the dog for good, grabbed a knife from their house ran after him and stabbed her ex-boyfriend, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The victim was rushed to Hadassah-University Hospital at Ein Kerem, while the female attacker was arrested on the scene. The dog was taken back to the apartment by police, and given a snack.
