GLENDALE, Ariz — UPDATE:
A suspect as been arrested in connection to the fatal stabbing of a 14-year-old back in November.
Rudy Jaramillo, 30, was arrested on Thursday and booked on one count of second-degree murder in the death of Elijah Ochoa-Gamez.
Jaramillo told authorities that he was confronting another adult over a stolen bicycle when the pair began physically fighting.
Ochoa-Gamez attempted to intervene by putting Jaramillo in a chokehold when Jaramillo pulled a knife from his and “poked” the teen with it.
Glendale Police are looking for three suspects after a 14-year-old boy was fatally stabbed in front of his home on Friday.
Police say it happened near Bethany Home Road and U.S. 60.
A fight between three adult suspects and the boy led to the stabbing, Glendale police said. The boy was taken to the hospital where he died. He has been identified as Elijah Ochoa-Gamez.

Suspect 1 is described as a Caucasian or Hispanic male, 20-30 years old, curly dark brown hair, approximately 5’5”-5’7”, average build, with a possible scar under his left eye. He was seen riding a BMX style bicycle.
