Lakewood police spokesman John Romero said two men were walking when a third man approached and stabbed one of them. Romero told the Lakewood Sentinel on Aug. 19 that the victim died from the incident.

The suspect is described as either being a white or Hispanic male with short black hair. Romero says police believe the suspect is 6 feet tall, around 150 pounds and was wearing a black hoodie with an emblem on the chest. 

Police received another call on reports of a dead adult male near the Colorado Fallen Firefighters Memorial at Belmar Park at 801 S. Wadsworth Blvd on Aug. 15 as well. Police identified the victim as 61-year-old Stevan Sandvick.

Romero announced in an email that a male was  arrested in connection Sandvick's death in the afternoon of Aug. 21. More information about the suspect is expected to be released as the day progresses. 

“Obviously, (the incidents happening) 100 yards away from each other is cause for concern,” said Romero.
