Israeli police arrest Bedouin man in southern Israel for stealing security guard's weapon

Jan. 5, 2017 7:28 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 5, 2017 7:28 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- A Bedouin man was arrested Thursday in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba after assaulting an Israeli security guard and stealing his firearm, according to Israeli police. 

Israeli police spokeswoman Luba al-Samri said in a statement that “an Arab youth in his twenties from [the village of] Hura, attacked a Jewish security guard,” injuring him. The Bedouin man then took the security guard’s weapon and fled the area. 

“Police members rushed to the area after receiving a notice on the incident; they located the suspect near a mall, chased and detained him; after searching him the guard's weapon was found stained with the guard's blood,” al-Samri said. 

The Bedouin man was detained and transferred for interrogation.

According to Israeli news website Ynet, Israeli police closed off the city of Beersheba from all directions in search of the suspect.

Ynet added that the security guard was taken to the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba where he received medical treatment, and was expected to be discharged later in the day.
