Police revealed early Sunday afternoon that at around 9:30 in the morning they had received report from a resident of Ashkelon who claimed to have picked up a hitchhiker matching Sela's description. The man said that he picked up the hitchhiker at around 2 a.m., but only when watching the morning news noticed the likeness between his passenger and the serial rapist. Police said that they were checking the citizen's story "with the greatest possible seriousness" and dispatched forces to comb Ashkelon for clues. Karadi said that he would hold a special situation assessment on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 at the Tel Aviv District headquarters, after which he promised to make a public statement as to the state of the investigation on Sela.
