HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Palestinian police arrested a man suspected of stabbing a 15-year-old girl to death in the Hebron village of Sair late Tuesday.

The suspect was found hiding in the hills surrounding Sair after a three-hour manhunt by police and confessed to the killing.

Umayma Muhammad Abdul-Rahim Jaradat, 15, was stabbed in the neck and chest in Sair on Tuesday. She arrived at Ahli hospital suffering massive blood loss and was later pronounced dead.

Jaradat was discovered by her parents upon returning from the Ramadan evening prayers. The mayor of Sair said the killing could have taken place during a botched robbery.
