The police arrested a Lebanese immigrant for stabbing an Orthodox Jewish man with a pair of scissors in a gruesome attack yesterday in Montreal.
According to reports, the Jewish man was casually leaning on a scooter on the sidewalk outside a Kosher meat processing plant.
The victim is dressed in traditional Jewish garb, wearing a white shirt, black pants, and Tzitzis above his shirt.
Without warning, the attacker exits onto the sidewalk from a door right next to him.
