Haredi man harrasses schoolchildren at Jerusalem bus stop

On Karl Netter Street in Jerusalem, there's been a galling display of - shall we say - senility by a Haredi resident against some non-Haredi students and the sad part is that one said something very dumb too. This article is in Hebrew and I've tried to translate it because Maariv doesn't have an English site anymore:
Students from Rene Cassan Jerusalem complain of person who berate them and threaten them while they are waiting for the bus station Karl Netter Street. Students say that the older man, who threatened to strike several times claiming that they "make a mess" in the station, near his home.

"It happened for the first time last year," says a student in the school. "Some girls wore shorts were at his house. The wife came outside and began screaming to get out of there because they wear clothes too exposed.

"In response, several boys told her it was a public area, and then she called her husband and asked him to bring her a bucket of water and pour it on them. In response, one child told her that if she poured water on us he would break her window. While the husband heard this, he came out of the house and chased some kids with a shovel, until he was tired."

But it did not end the threats and harassment mask. "Another time several children were around the station, adjacent to his house. Maybe we talked a bit, but we didn't make too much noise. He went out and began to provoke us," says the student.

"I told him that's where we're waiting for our bus, and then he took a rolling pin, started screaming and threatened to call the police, and if we didn't go he would beat us. We just waited at the bus stop, and if we made some noise, we were not trying to provoke him."
Note to student who said he'd break the window: nice going there, giving them potential ammo to use against you. Just say that you'd call the cops on him for harrassment and intimidation. Since he lives nearby, it's not like they'd have to look far.
"There is not enough information to handle the event"

Principal Violet Gaz says that "occasionally there's friction with the local population, and we are working with these cases two levels on the one hand we instruct the children to try not to argue with people, and on the other we usually invite the police to deal with specific cases, and recommend the complaint.

"If we reported the real-time event that happened we turned to the police to try to investigate the situation. We do not allow children to be alone with such factors. This specific case is certainly an event that should be handled, but now I do not have enough information to handle the event. I'd love to have students turn to me and we can reach a solution, so that such incidents do not recur"
If that jerk and his wife keep it up, they should call the cops. But none of the students should threaten to vandalize as a means of solving problems. I realize they're youngsters, but even so, that was mighty stupid what one of them spluttered out.
