Teaneck NJ, in a recent development following a pro-Hamas protest in Teaneck, authorities have apprehended a New York man nearly three weeks after he allegedly engaged in threatening behavior towards a woman, wielding a knife during the demonstration.

According to a press release from the Teaneck Police Department, Ebrahim Yehounatan, 71, hailing from Flushing, New York, was taken into custody on Friday following a routine motor vehicle stop in Lakewood. This arrest comes in response to an active warrant issued since April 14, prompted by a reported bias incident involving the aforementioned individual.

The incident unfolded when the victim, participating in a vehicle procession in support of Palestine along Teaneck Road, found herself subjected to verbal abuse and racial epithets hurled by a passenger in a neighboring car. Matters escalated as the passenger allegedly spat in her direction, while the driver, later identified as Yehounatan, brandished a knife in a menacing manner.

Fortified with evidence in the form of a recorded altercation provided by the victim, law enforcement initiated a thorough bias investigation. Subsequently, Yehounatan was formally charged with two counts of bias intimidation, along with harassment and possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes.

While the rear-seat passenger was also identified, it was determined through legal scrutiny that his actions did not meet the threshold for criminal charges, as clarified by the police.

Following his apprehension, Yehounatan was escorted to the Teaneck Police Department for processing and served with the outstanding warrant. He has since been remanded to the Bergen County Jail, awaiting an initial court appearance to address the charges levied against him.
