As Stand for Israel reported to you, a young Israeli woman was stabbed by a terrorist. We continue to pray for God's healing hand over her. But as more details of the attack come out, Ynet News' Ahiya Raved reports on the brave taxi driver who helped police catch the terrorist who carried out this heinous and cowardly crime:

Taxi driver Tomer Mazal Tov was the hero of the day Monday when he followed the attacker who stabbed 18-year-old Shuva Malka in Afula, helping the police apprehend him.

Mazal Tov told Ynet he was heading out of the city towards the Amos army base with a passenger when his friend called him and told him about the stabbing.

"He told me a terrorist was at large in the city, and that I should be careful," Mazal Tov recounted.

"As I was heading out of the city, I saw a young man walking on a path in the field on the side of the road. He was dressed in long clothes in the terrible heat and that aroused my suspicion," he explained...

"On Jerusalem Street, (the other taxi driver) pulled over and the suspect fled the vehicle. I reported all of this to the police in real time," Mazal Tov went on to say.

"He went in between the houses on Jerusalem Street, the cops chased after him, and I drove to the other side of the street to block him if he got there. This is the point I started shouting at the police officers to stop him because he was getting away..."
