The Citizen (KZN) - - World - New York

–An in­truder stabbed and wounded five peo­ple at a rabbi’s house in New York dur­ing a party to cel­e­brate the Jewish fes­ti­val of Hanukkah on Satur­day.

A sus­pect has been taken into cus­tody and a ve­hi­cle safe­guarded, a po­lice spokesper­son said.

Gover­nor of New York An­drew Cuomo said he was “hor­ri­fied” by the “de­spi­ca­ble and cow­ardly act”, and had di­rected the state po­lice hate crimes task force to in­ves­ti­gate.
