A suspect has been arrested in connection with a stabbing last week in Belltown that killed a man.

The 22-year-old suspect from Renton was arrested Monday. Seattle Police said they are still looking for one more suspect.

The victim, 21-year-old Faustino Cervantes, was stabbed in the chest and died on October 26 as he and his girlfriend walked to their car after leaving a Belltown bar.

Police said Cervantes got into a fight outside Tia Lou's nightclub prior to the stabbing.

Detectives believe he tried to walk away, but the suspect followed him to his car, parked in a lot near 1st Avenue and Bell Street.

Officers said witnesses have turned in cell phone video that showed the suspects prior to the fight, but they are still looking for more.

Anyone who may have witnessed the incident is asked to call the Seattle Police Homicide Tip Line at (206) 233-5000 or (206) 684-5550.
