A 21-year-old man was stabbed multiple times in the torso on Hankin Street in Ra’anana Sunday evening.

He was in moderate condition when Magen David Adom paramedics took him to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba for treatment.

Police are investigating the cause of the incident, which they deem to be criminal in nature. Authorities are searching for the attacker.

Sunday night’s attack is the latest in a wave of violent crime plaguing Israel. A man in Netanya stabbed a shopkeeper to death on Friday, and a week prior Gadi VIchman was murdered in Beersheba after asking local teens outside of his apartment building to keep the noise down. The  following night Orgil Muati was slain in Rehovot.
