Four Arabs arrested for east Jerusalem robbery

Four Arab residents of Jerusalem were detained for an east Jerusalem robbery in which a 70-year-old victim died of an apparent heart attack, police said Tuesday. The suspects, who have confessed to the crime and were apprehended over the last week, have been remanded in custody by a Jerusalem court, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. Last week's robbery in the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina was the latest in a series of violent robberies in the city which targeted seniors. Police said that the suspects were not connected to the other robberies in the city which targeted Jewish seniors.
