Emergency services received a call last night (Saturday) about a suspicious man holding a knife in Bet Shemesh's Big Center.
Police quickly arrived on the scene and found that they were not dealing with an Arab terrorist, but rather a Jew. When one officer approached the man, the latter threatened to stab him. The officer drew his weapon and the suspect dropped the knife.
The police officers also found that the man was carrying a Molotv cocktail.
The suspect has been arrested and taken to the Bet Shemesh police station for interrogation.
Authorities have not released further information.
