He is survived by his wife, who is pregnant, and a young son. Police officials said they believe the man worked as a security guard for a company that provided services to the Brink's security firm.

Chief Superintendent Haim Bublil of the Ashkelon police station, who came to the site of the stabbing, said the victim had no criminal record. Neighbors of the dead man's parents told Haaretz that the victim was very kind-hearted kind and had no enemies. They said they had no explanation for the murder. The man had come from work to visit his parents and was killed just after getting out of his car. A Magen David Adom ambulance crew that received a report of a man lying on the street was dispatched.
