In the night of the attack, at around 23:00, the two terrorists infiltrated the Israeli community through the security fence surrounding it. They waited for a chance to attack innocent civilians, and it was when Sergey Karbachuv passed them by with his dog, that they stabbed him a number of times in different parts of his body. After the attack, the two escaped the scene, leaving the stabbed Karbachuv severely wounded.
