A market vendor was stabbed to death in Netanya on Friday after an argument over a debt turned into a fight, police said.

Psahov Vladislav, 29, of Hadera, ran a market stall selling phones, and was visited by two brothers, police continued.

The brothers were previously acquainted with Vladislav, and had come to talk about a financial debt, the police investigation found. An argument erupted between the men, which quickly deteriorated into a physical fight.

The elder brother, 44, brandished a knife, stabbed the victim in the back and fled the scene. A member of the public chased after him, tackled him to the floor, and handed him over to municipal inspectors and police who were called the scene.

The murder suspect and his 25-year-old younger brother are both in police custody.

Magen David Adom paramedics found Vladislav lying on the sidewalk outside his stall in critical condition, though he was conscious when they arrived. He was evacuated to a hospital while paramedics attempted to stabilize his condition.

Doctors attempted to save him in the hospital, but pronounced him dead soon afterwards.


The killing comes after a wave of slayings last week that have rocked the country and raised concerns among the public over issues of personal security and the ease with which altercations deteriorate into lethal assaults.

The Israel Police vowed to beef up forces on city streets to prevent violence, while also calling for a greater budget to allow for the recruitment of more officers.
