The man arrested in connection with a fatal stabbing on the Las Vegas Strip this weekend has been identified as 25-year-old Victor Quijano.

Metro Police said Quijano, of Las Vegas, has been charged with murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder with a deadly weapon and possession of a dangerous weapon.

Police were called about 4:15 a.m. about a fight involving several people on the walkway between MGM Grand and New York-New York.

Officers arrived to find two Hispanic men suffering from multiple stab wounds, Lt. Lew Roberts said.

Both victims were transported to UMC Trauma, where one of them was pronounced dead, Roberts said. The other was expected to survive after surgery.

Officers were able to capture two suspects who were near the stabbings and took them into custody without incident, he said.

The Clark County Coroner's Office will identify the victim pending notification of family and an autopsy.

Quijano is being held in the Clark County Detention Center without bail, according to jail records. His first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.
