A private security guard was arrested on Thursday evening after allegedly attacking an Al Jazeera reporter at Malha Mall in Jerusalem.
The suspect, a Jewish man in his 40s, worked as a security guard at the Malha branch of the post office.
The reporter said he was sitting in a coffee shop in the mall with his crew when the guard attacked without provocation.
The guard was not armed during the confrontation. He was taken for questioning and will be brought before the court on Friday morning.
