Frankfurt Police Make Arrest in Stabbing of Chabad Rabbi

Frankfurt, Germany

A German citizen of Afghani background has admitted stabbing the Chabad Shliach in Frankfurt.

The 22-year-old man was arrested September 13-one week after the attack on Rabbi Zalman Gurevitch–and charged with attempted murder and causing life-threatening injury.

Investigators reportedly tracked down the attacker through a detailed description of the incident posted on an Internet forum.

Gurevitch, 42, was stabbed in the stomach on his way home from Shabbat services. He is currently in the hospital recovering from his wounds, and is expected to be released shortly.
