an indictment was filed yesterday (Thursday) against two young men from Rish Laz and Mebasheret Zion after they threatened a taxi driver with a Japanese knife and robbed his money.

The investigation of the case conducted at the Harel station shows that on January 28 late at night, one of those involved ordered a taxi ride for the victim using the "get-taxi" app from the Beit Zeit Moshav near Jerusalem to the city of Ramla.

Upon their arrival, the passenger got out of the taxi claiming that he went to his car to get money to pay for the trip, opened the taxi driver's door while taking out a sharp tool (a Japanese knife) and began threatening the victim while demanding that the vehicle engine be turned off and that he hand over his money.

In response to these actions, the taxi driver handed him a sum of hundreds of shekels and the suspect also took the victim's glasses.

After these actions, the suspect called the victim and threatened to harm him if he sought the help of the police.
