A 28-year-old man was stabbed to death in Kiryat Malachi on Thursday in what police believe was an argument between two homeless men which became violent.
Police arrested a suspect in the case shortly after the man was found dead.
The victim was found seriously wounded, suffering from several stab wounds to his upper body near a synagogue in the area. MDA paramedics attempted to resuscitate him, but were forced to pronounce him dead on the scene.
Police investigating the scene of the crime determined that the suspect had escaped to a nearby apartment building. They pursued him to the building, arresting him.
