An Orthodox rabbi was stabbed several times in broad daytime beyond a Boston-area synagogue on Thursday, according to reports.
Shlomo Noginski was consistently stabbed today beyond the Shaloh House Jewish Day School in Brighton, Mass. Noginski acts as a rabbi and instructor at Shaloh House, a Chabad institution serving the Boston-area’s Russian Jewish neighborhood, and their summer day camp was in session. […] Noginski was resting on the front actions of the Shaloh House on his mobile phone. The suspect approached him, drew a weapon and asked Noginski to take him to his vehicle. When the suspect attempted to force Noginski into the cars and truck, the rabbi attempted running across the street to a small park called Brighton Common, where the suspect stabbed Noginski numerous times in the arm. As the rabbi attempted to fend off the opponent he raised a commotion, lastly triggering the suspect to get away.
Noginski is currently receiving medical treatment at Boston Medical Center and is in stable condition.
The presumed aggressor was equipped with a weapon and a knife. He was immediately nabbed by police.
