An argument between two hotel cooks in Eilat ended in murder Saturday morning, police reported.

Officers responding to a call from the Bet Almog hotel in the Red Sea city found a 26-year-old Netanya man in critical condition with stab wounds to the upper body. The man was taken to Joseftal Hospital in the city, where he died shortly after.

Within an hour, police found the suspect walking around the city, a 32-year-old Netanya native who had worked at the hotel with the victim.

Police said the man was carrying the suspected murder weapons when he was stopped.
