The 18-year-old will be brought before the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court later on Tuesday for a remand hearing. He will likely face charges of aiding a terrorist.
The suspected assailant, an 18-year-old Palestinian, was arrested late Monday night hours after he fled the scene of the attack.

Israel Police spokesperson Luba Samri on Monday said that officers found a knife at the scene.
The victim, said to be an ultra-Orthodox man in his 60s, told officials that after he was stabbed he walked some 300 meters to the Austrian Hospice to get help. He was then taken to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center for treatment. Hospital officials described him as stable and conscious.
