A 41-year-old woman was seriously wounded on Friday morning when she was stabbed on Tel Aviv’s Moshe Dayan Street.
Police spotted her lying on the sidewalk and she told them a masked manhad stabbed her in the upper body, taken her bag and fled.
The woman’s ex-husband was arrested on suspicion of involvement in the incident.

The man's relative was also arrested.
