A man and woman in their 30s were stabbed to death in the woman’s Lod apartment in Central Israel on Monday, in what police are describing as a domestic dispute carried out by an enraged ex boyfriend, who was arrested and hospitalized after the attack.

While details of the double homicide remain largely unknown pending an investigation, Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the unidentified suspect entered the Russian-Israeli woman’s apartment while she was with the male victim, also from Russia.

Police units arrived at the building within minutes after receiving multiple calls from alarmed neighbors, he said.

“Police cordoned-off the area around the apartment building and arrested the suspect at the scene shortly after the murders took place,” said Rosenfeld. “He was transferred to an area hospital in moderate-to-serious condition and will be arraigned as soon as he is treated and released.”

An investigation has been opened into his motives, he added.

“We’re still looking into the background, but as far as we understand, it was a criminal domestic murder,” Rosenfeld said.
