Nine suspects were arrested Sunday in connection to the murder of Gadi Vichman in Beersheba. Vichman, 36, had been stabbed to death Friday night after asking a group of teens to keep their voices down as he tried to get his daughter to sleep.
Five of the suspects are thought to have been at the scene of the murder Friday night, including a 16-year-old girl.
An additional four suspects apparently aided their friends after the murder. With the exception of the 16-year-old girl, all of the suspects are over the age of 19.

Gadi Vichman was murdered just hours after celebrating his two-year-old daughter's birthday. According to friends of the family, Vichman had called the police during the night to complain of noise of bottles being smashed. Failing to get his daughter to sleep, Vichman later went downstairs and told a group of teens in a small park to be quiet.
During this time his wife had made a second call to the police. But by the time the officers came, Vichman had been stabbed in his upper torso. Medics who tried to resuscitate him were forced to pronounce him dead.
