A man in his twenties was stabbed to death overnight Thursday at a brothel near Tel Aviv's old Central Bus Station. An MDA team tried to resuscitate the man but was forced to pronounced him dead at the scene. Detectives said witnesses reported seeing a car speeding away from the area after the incident. Police detained a number of workers for questioning and were examining the possibility that the man was murdered during an attempted robbery. The area in question is notorious for criminal activity with numerous robberies committed on a near daily basis. Just two days ago, police arrested two employees at a nearby escort agency after a customer claimed he had been violently robbed.
