A 51-year-old man was arrested for allegedly attempting to kidnap a woman in her 20s on Tuesday in what the police said seems to have been a nationalistic-motivated crime in the city of Tiberias.

The woman initially called the police stating that an unknown man tried to force her into his car on David Ramez Street in Tiberias.

The arrest was made shortly after police officers arrived at the scene and managed to locate the suspect. He was brought to the local police station for questioning.

The investigation was handed over to Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency).
