Woman arrested for allegedly crashing car into Indianapolis ‘Jewish school’ with people inside

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) says a woman is in custody after allegedly driving her car into a building she thought was a Jewish school over the weekend.

According to a police report, officers were called to the building, which officials say is used by the Israelite School of Universal and Practical Knowledge, around 11:30 p.m. Friday to investigate a possible hate crime.

Upon arrival, officers say they found Ruba Almaghtheh, 34, who had backed her car into the building while several adults and children were inside. Police labeled Almaghtheh a “terrorist” according to Fox 59.

Officers say Almaghtheh told them she was watching news coverage of the Israel-Hamas war on television, and was offended by the “Hebrew Israelite” symbol on the outside building – so she decided to attack the building.
