Police said Wednesday they have arrested a man suspected of attacking Poland's chief rabbi in late May. The arrest comes nearly five weeks after Michael Schudrich, a New Yorker who became the nation's chief rabbi in 2004, was punched and attacked with what appeared to be pepper spray on a street in central Warsaw on May 27. Schudrich was not injured in the attack. A spokesman for the national police, Mariusz Sokolowksi, told The Associated Press that officers had arrested a suspect. He said further details would be released later at a news conference.
