( An unknown Arab assailant stabbed a 32-year-old Israeli man with a screwdriver on Sunday in the latest terror attack in Jerusalem.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the haredi man who stabbed made it on his own to Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate and showed police the screwdriver lodged in his back.

“Much to our surprise, a young haredi man approached us and said he had been stabbed in the back,” said Border Police Sgt. 1st Class Aviv Nahman. “He was in shock and was holding the screwdriver in his hand. We immediately reported the incident, called Magen David Adom emergency services and took him to the police station near the Western Wall. We spread out our forces in the area to look for the suspect.”

Dr. Ofer Marin, director of the trauma center at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, said the Jewish man’s wounds were not life-threatening.
