Serious injury to a Jewish shopkeeper was an outcome of the continued anti-Jewish boycott being carried on by the Arabs. While Arab policemen nearby looked on and failed to interfere, Arab pickets stabbed the Jewish owner in the neck and smashed the window of his shop. Two Arabs were arrested.

The Arab pickets had attempted to keep an Arab purchaser from entering the store. When they failed. they smashed the merchandise he purchased and forced him to return to demand his money back. When the shopkeeper refused, the pickets smashed the window. The Arab policemen did not attempt to disperse the crowd. Two British policemen arrived and made the arrest.
