A man was arrested Wednesday night after he threatened to kill another man and stabbed him in the neck at a Muni stop in San Francisco’s Castro district.

The May 25 incident occurred at 8:49 p.m. when the suspect walked up to the victim, who was standing at the transit stop, and said “that he was going to kill him,” Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary. The man then stabbed the victim in “in the neck with a knife,” Esparza said.

The suspect was arrested and taken into custody, but his name wasn’t immediately available. He was described as a 52-year-old Hispanic male.

The victim, 41, was taken to a hospital with a non-life threatening stab wound.

[Update]: Esparza said in an email that Mark Anthony Arroyo, 52, a homeless white male, was booked on suspicion of attempted homicide, brandishing a weapon, and violating parole.

“There were no words exchanged,” Esparza said. “The suspect yelled and then attacked” the victim. [End update]
