An assailant wounded five people late on Saturday at a Hasidic rabbi’s home in New York state and escaped before allegedly being captured.
The Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council (OJPAC) stated on Twitter an attacker wearing a scarf stabbed the victims at a house in Monsey, Rockland County, about 30 miles north of New York City.
Victims were taken to hospitals, the council declared, adding that two of the victims were in a severe state, with one of them stabbed at least six times.
“The suspect escaped the scene, but he is in custody at this time,” the Ramapo Police Department said in a Facebook post.
