Deputies arrested a man Friday suspected in the stabbing death of a 22-year-old man in Laguna Niguel, authorities said.
Craig Tanber, 37, was arrested around 6:15 a.m. at a Westminster Motel 6 in connection with the fatal stabbing of Shayan Mazroei outside of Patsy's Irish Pub on Monday.
Details regarding the arrest were not immediately available.
Authorities said Tanber was a known gang member who also served eight years in prison for beating a man to death in Huntington Beach.
Authorities were searching for Tanber since Monday. Deputies said Tanber fled after stabbing Mazroei around 12:15 a.m. in the upper torso.
Mazroei was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Orange County Crime Stoppers announced Tuesday a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Tanber.
