Knife rampage at rabbi's home in New York

Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg shakes a hand with people in Monsey, New York, December 29, 2019. An assailant who stabbed five people attending a party at an Hasidic rabbi's home in what New York's governor called an act of domestic terrorism appears to have been acting alone, police said on Sunday. Grafton Thomas, 37, is accused of attempted murder after bursting in to the Hanukkah celebration on Saturday night in Rockland County, about 30 miles north of New York City. Police said he fled and was later arrested in Manhattan by two officers who were on the lookout for his car.

Rabbi Chaim Rottenberg celebrates with people the arrival of a new Torah at his residence in Monsey, New York, December 29, 2019. According to Yossi Gestetner, co-founder of the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council, the attacker had his face partially covered with a scarf when he stabbed five people, two of whom were in critical condition. "One of the rabbi's children was also stabbed," Gestetner told reporters. One witness who was at the rabbi's home said he began praying for his life when he saw the assailant remove a large knife from a case. "It was about the size of a broomstick," Aron Kohn told the New York Times.
