A 46-year-old Bnei Brak resident described as “chareidi” was taken into custody for allegedly threatening Lesbian women with an axe on Lillianbaum Street in Tel Aviv.
Police report the suspect threatened a group of women with an axe close to midnight as they were waiting to enter a pub. The man reportedly shouted at them “we must fix Tel Aviv” and then fled in a car.

The incident occurred two days before Tel Aviv will be hosting the city’s annual Gay parade.
