Argentina: Police arrest all 6 members of gang who brutally attacked rabbi in his home
Police in Argentina have arrested the sixth and last member of the gang who brutally attacked Chief Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich in his home in February.
The 53-year-old attacker had in his possession several weapons, including two handguns, 15 cartridges, and a police credential which had been reported stolen.
On February 25, several assailants invaded the home of Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich in a traditionally Jewish Buenos Aires neighborhood and brutally beat him while shouting “We know that you are the AMIA Rabbi.”
Davidovich’s wife was tied up during the home invasion. The assailants stole money and other possessions from the home.
Davidovich spent several weeks in hospital with nine broken bones and a punctured lung.
Two suspects were arrested shortly after the attack after police located a vehicle used to facilitate the attack.
Three members of the gang were arrested in April, following a raid on the home of local Buenos Aires gang leader known as “Coco,” after a two-month investigation which included fingerprint analysis and reviews of security camera footage.
During the raid, items were found belonging to Rabbi Gabriel Davidovich, including jewelry, a ceremonial pen from Jerusalem, an Orthodox-style hat, as well as large amounts of cash.
