A policeman who lives near the Sarona Market, the scene of Wednesday’s terror attack, let one of the two terrorists into his house and gave him a glass of water without knowing he was a murderer.
The terrorist approached the policeman's house as he tried to flee the scene. He remained close to a group of people who did not know he was a terrorist, thus avoiding suspicion.
The terrorist then reportedly approached a house and asked for a glass of water. The homeowner – the police officer – did not know he was the terrorist and invited him inside, let him sit down, gave him a glass of water and left him there with his wife and other family members.
The officer then rushed to leave his home as he received the call of the attack and went to help. When he saw the second neutralized terrorist lying on the ground in a suit, he realized that the man in his home was connected to the attack, since he was wearing the same clothes.
The officer immediately ran back to his home where he saw the terrorists still sitting in the chair. He rushed and held the terrorist down until backup police arrived and arrested him.
