EAST HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — Authorities say they’ve made an arrest in connection with last week’s fatal stabbing of a man on a Metro Red Line in East Hollywood.

Angelo Correa, 24, is being held in lieu of $1 million bail in connection with the fatal stabbing of 34-year-old Jose Velasco-Alvarado on Jan. 13.

The incident unfolded about 9:18 a.m. Monday near the Vermont/Santa Monica Station.
