A 43-year-old man accused in a fatal stabbing on a Metro bus in Highland Park was arrested Wednesday and booked on suspicion of murder, but two other suspects remain at large.

Allen Jay Milton, who was detained Tuesday, was booked after being interviewed by homicide detectives. He was being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

The fatal attack occurred on Metro bus line 81 along North Figueroa Street around 10:40 p.m. Monday.

Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Barraza said three men boarded the bus at Avenue 57, walked to the back and began arguing with the victim, who was stabbed in the chest. The assailants fled when the bus, which was carrying about 10 passengers, stopped at North Figueroa and Meridian Streets, he said.

The name of the victim, who was in his 30s, has not been released.

The two suspects still being sought were described only as Hispanic men, reportedly ranging in age from 25 to 35. Anyone with information about their whereabouts was urged to call the Sheriff’s Information Bureau, (323) 890-5500; or Crime Stoppers, (800) 222-TIPS.
