Sephardic Jew’s Arrest Leads to Rumor He Has Clue to Murder of Arlosoroff

The arrest here yesterday of a humble Sephardic Jew on unknown charges caused a rumor in the press here that he was connected with the search for the murderer of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff. One paper said it has information that the Sephardi resembled the description of the assassin given by Mrs. Arlosoroff.

Police here, however, informed the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that the rumor was without foundation. In any case, they hinted, it would be difficult to imagine what connection an obscure Sephardic Jew who has no political connections would have with Dr. Arlosoroff’s slaying.

Authorities are still continuing their quest for the man or men who were responsible for the tragic death of the young Zionist leader.
