Police are on the hunt for a taxi belonging to a group of men suspected of murdering an Eritrean who was stabbed to death late Friday night in Tel Aviv.

The incident happened on Hamasger Street in south Tel Aviv, a popular nightclub district in the city. Witnesses reported seeing a taxi stop next to the victim, a 24-year-old Eritrean man, at which point a number of men got out and stabbed him before fleeing again in the cab, police said.

The victim was taken to Ichilov Hosptial, where he was ruled dead not long after.

Tel Aviv police said that they still have not found the men believed responsible for the killing. They said that they are suspected of being Israeli Arabs or Palestinians, according to testimony given by witnesses at the scene, police said.
