An Eritrean man was arrested after allegedly stabbing his girlfriend in the neck and attempting to hang himself in what police are saying was an attempted murder suicide last night in Ashdod.

Lachish District Spokeswoman Shlomit Zachariya said at 1 a.m. police arrived at the couple's apartment on Natan Elbaz street in Ashdod to find the woman lightly hurt and man in serious condition, and that both were taken by paramedics to Kaplan Hospital in Rehovot for treatment.

Zachariya said police have opened an investigation into the incident, which they believe derived from some sort of romantic dispute between the two.

Magen David Adom spokesman Zaki Heller said that paramedics received a call around 1am about a brawl in the street and when they arrived they found the man on the ground in moderate condition with a severe blow to his head. Heller said the man had hung himself from a tree on the street outside the apartment and he suffered the blow to.his head after he fell to the ground when his friend cut him free from the rope around his neck.
