Black man, 37, is arrested for ‘storming into a rabbi’s home with a machete and stabbing five people’ during a Hanukkah party in an ‘act of domestic terrorism’ amid a surge in anti-Semitic attacks

New York City police have arrested a man suspected of stabbing five people in a rabbi’s home during a Hanukkah celebration in a predominantly Jewish town in upstate New York on Saturday night.

The suspect was identified as 37-year-old Thomas Grafton of Greenwood Lake, New York, a police source told CNN.

Grafton allegedly stormed into the home of Rabbi Chaim Leibush Rottenberg, the leader of Congregation Netzach Yisrael-Kosson, in Monsey at around 10pm and began wildly swinging a machete at some 60 worshippers gathered for a candle-lighting ceremony for the seventh night of Hanukkah.
