A Boston-area Chabad rabbi was in stable condition after being stabbed several times outside a Jewish synagogue and day school, with police still investigating into a possible motive.

Shlomo Noginski, a rabbi and teacher at Shaloh House in Brighton, Massachusetts, was repeatedly stabbed outside the institution Thursday afternoon, according to local NBC10 news, and was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The attacker was reportedly also carrying a firearm, according to a report, which said that Noginski was sitting on the Shaloh House front steps when the assailant drew a gun on him and attempted to force Noginski into his own car. When the victim fled to a nearby park, the assailant stabbed him several times, before ultimately fleeing. He was soon after apprehended.

“We are aware that a stabbing occurred outside of the Hasidic Center in Brighton and that one person has been taken into custody,” said the Anti-Defamation League of New England on Twitter. “An active @bostonpolice investigation into what happened including possible motivation is underway.”
