Within minutes he arrived at the house of his friend Mizrahi, a resident of Jaffa, and left the place.
According to the suspicion, the friend from Jaffa, the suspect and his partner then went to his house to ask for help getting rid of the scooter he was using at the time of the stabbing.
Another friend of the suspect was asked to help him buy a new cell phone and bring turpentine to his house to erase unique marks on the motorcycle.
