Las Vegas police have accused a man of murder after a deadly stabbing Monday night, officers announced.
Metro booked Thomas Cash, 52, into Clark County Detention Center on Tuesday.
Police were called around 6:55 p.m. to the 4000 block of Pistachio Nut Avenue, near Craig Road and Lamb Boulevard, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Dan McGrath said.
Police said a couple was arguing in a street. During the argument, a police department statement said, Cash came out of his house and fought with one of the people arguing.
A 21-year-old man tried to intervene, and Cash stabbed him, police said. He died at the scene.
The Clark County coroner’s office will release the victim’s identity after next of kin has been notified.
