Unified Police identified the suspect as Bakai on Friday. He was located and taken into custody at 2:55 a.m., according to reporting by FoxNow13.

Lt. Paul Barker of the Unified Police Department said the stabbing occurred around 10:15 p.m. near 3400 South and 900 East.

Witnesses told police the victim, a man in his 30s, arrived at the apartment complex to give someone a ride when the suspect, who also lives at the complex, stabbed him in the back.

The victim was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

Friday morning police confirmed the suspect was arrested around 2:55 a.m. after officers responded to the area of 3128 South 900 East, near the Brickyard Shopping Plaza.

The motive in the stabbing is unclear.

“So it doesn’t sound like it was a premeditated, or a fight or… the victims know the suspect—you know, the guy that lives here in the apartment complex—but no indication of any sort of motive,” Barker said.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with possible information on the stabbing incident should contact police at 911.
