A Muslim man threatened to stab an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man in the Meah Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem, Israel, the Jerusalem police said in a statement.

The police caught up with the Muslim man, who fled the scene after he tried to stab a Jew inside the ultra-Orthodox Jewish neighborhood late Monday afternoon. The victim was not injured.

The suspect had fled, but police caught him later and questioned him.
Police said that the initial investigation revealed that the attempted stabbing was most likely a terrorist attack, but have not released more details.
