Jerusalem District Police Minority Division has arrested six Arab youths,

According to Tazpit news agency, the police were initially hesitant about
investigating the attack, as the victims had not lodged an official
complaint. However, public pressure, generated in particular through the
social media, motivated the police to investigate the incident, and they
have now announced that all assailants have been apprehended.

Tazpit quoted one of the victims as saying that dozens of Arabs "surrounded
us and began to throw snow at us. They played with our hats, knocked them
down, punched us and kicked us in the face and on the back. We were two
against dozens, and could do nothing. I was sure I was not going to survive.
I was drenched from the snow, and surrounded by Arabs, and no one helped."
