The attacker suddenly fastens his stride, pulls out a knife and stabs the victim multiple times in the neck and body. The attacker then attempts to slash wildly at other bystanders before running out of frame.The attack happened around 8:50 a.m., when the terrorist stabbed a 32-year-old man at a bus stop on Ahuza Street, outside a shopping center in the middle of town. The man was moderately wounded with injuries to his stomach and neck, but managed to fight off his attacker. Once other civilians came, they were able to subdue the man until police arrived.Shortly after the initial incident, a second attack occurred at 10:40 a.m., when police received a report of a stabbing outside Beit Loewenstein Hospital further down Ahuza Street, where a 28-year-old man from east Jerusalem stabbed four people sitting at a café, wounding one seriously and three lightly.The attacker then fled down Ahuza Street while a group of bystanders gave chase. A motorist who saw the scene unfolding hit the terrorist with his car, and then he and another motorist grabbed him and subdued him until police arrived.Israel suffered its bloodiest day yet Tuesday, seeing three dead and over 20 injured in a wave of violence that has gripped the holy land over the past several days.
