A 30-year-old man was in custody Sunday in connection with a fatal stabbing at an Indio apartment complex.

Shortly after midnight Saturday, police discovered a victim suffering from a stab wound in the common area of Las Brisas Apartments in the 81900 block of Hoover Street, according to the Indio Police Department.

The victim, described only as a man, was taken to a hospital but later died.

About six hours later, Cesar Sanchez, an Indio resident, was taken into custody in the 83000 block of Emerald Avenue, a little over a mile away from where the stabbing occurred, police said.

Investigators said they believe there was some kind of confrontation between the suspect and victim prior to the stabbing.

Sanchez was booked into the John J. Benoit Detention Center in Indio on suspicion of murder.
