Jerusalem - Owner of popular Gutnick Hall receives death threats, car burned by vandals

Police are investigating violence and death threats against the owner of the popular Gutnick Hall in Jerusalem.

The latest incident occurred on Wednesday night, after the hall owner parked his car on Sorotzkin Street in Jerusalem.

People in the area awoke to the sound of an explosion, and were surprised to see that the car belonging to the hall owner was set on fire.

Firefighters who arrived at the scene found a Ford Mondeo on fire. The vehicle was totally burned and the vehicle parked next to it was slightly damaged.

Fire investigators who collected evidence from the scene determined that it was arson. 

The owner of the vehicle filed a police complaint, and police said that they are currently looking for suspects.

This was not the first vandalism incident to strike the family. On Monday, the victim’s son-in-law, who lives in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood of Jerusalem, reported that his car was set on fire. Police believe that the two cases are related.

Two months ago, the son-in-law also received a death threat in the mail along with a bullet, according to police.

Police said that it is possible that recently fired employees of the Gutnick hall might be behind the death threats and the vandalism.
