CASA GRANDE, Ariz. (AP) - Police in Casa Grande have arrested a suspect after a stabbing left a man hospitalized in critical condition.
They say 21-year-old Angel Luz was taken into custody Tuesday night for alleged shoplifting at a store.
Police say Luz had been identified earlier in the day as a suspect in the stabbing case.
Officers responded to a stabbing call at a Casa Grande apartment about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.
They found 24-year-old Adam Craig Lewis inside the residence with what appeared to be numerous stab wounds.
Lewis was transported by ambulance to a Casa Grande hospital and then flown to a Phoenix-area hospital where he underwent surgery for his injuries.
Police say they interviewed witnesses and identified Luz as a suspect.
He's jailed on suspicion of aggravated assault.
