Arrest in Stabbing Death of Venice Restaurant Worker

Guillermo Carmona-Perez was stabbed in the chest and left to die in the street as he walked between jobs

A 23-year-old man has been arrested in the stabbing death of a Venice restaurant employee who was attacked in November after walking from work.

Jorge Nolasco, of Los Angeles, was arrested in connection with the slaying of Guillermo Carmona-Perez, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Nolasco was booked Thursday on suspicion of murder.

Bond was set at $1 million.

The attack occurred Nov. 18 near Pacific Avenue and Washington Boulevard. The investigation included a $50,000 reward offer for information in the case, which stunned co-workers who described Carmona-Perez as a "stand-up family man."

Carmona-Perez was walking from one of the kitchen jobs her worked in the Venice area when he was stabbed and left face-down to die in the street. He suffered stab wounds to the chest.

Nolasco's next court date is scheduled for Jan. 23, according to jail records.
