Police said Saturday that the two victims of a stabbing in Haifa were not attacked over a noise complaint, and that the men are not brothers — they are good friends and roommates, who are familiar with the law.

The violent incident was reportedly precipitated by some type of illegal activity, in which the victims were presumably involved.

Police said one suspect had been detained in the stabbing and they were still searching for a second.

According to the victims’ original story, they were brothers who had been stabbed overnight Friday after they had asked a man to lower the volume of the music in his car. They said that the driver had gotten out of his vehicle and attacked them.

The men, both in their 30s, were treated at Haifa’s Bnai Zion Medical Center for moderate injuries.
