A 27-year-old Israeli tried to stab his mother with a kitchen knife Wednesday after she refused to let his girlfriend stay over for the Yom Kippur holiday, police said. The midday attack took place in the family's flat in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo. The mother's male friend, who tried to protect her from her son, was stabbed in the face and lightly wounded, while she herself was lightly scratched in the face during the scuffle. The suspect was arrested on the scene, and the mother's lifelong friend was rushed to Jerusalem's Sha'are Zedek Hospital.
