ONE MAN has been arrested and another suspect sought in the stabbing murder of a man Friday evening in Garden Grove.

A 20-year-old Santa Ana man was fatally stabbed Friday night in Garden Grove and one suspect is in custody, according to police. The incident took place in the 12800 block of Haster Street around 9:15 p.m.

Officers responding to a report of a domestic dispute between a male and a female arrived to find a man with a stab wound to his chest. Garden Grove paramedics treated the victim, who was taken to UCI Medical Center where he succumbed to his wounds.
