Two people were arrested Saturday in connection with a fatal November stabbing of a homeless man in California, who was caught on beautiful video, police said.

Fred Scott Johnson, 23, and Savannah McKinley, 28, were arrested in Anaheim, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a press release. Johnson was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and McKinley was arrested on suspicion of accessory to murder after the fact.

Police described the pair as transients, according to KTLA.


Hernando Perez, 58, died on Nov. 8, two days after being approached by a man on a bench in the center of Los Angeles, and repeatedly stabbed him, police said.

Los Angeles police released surveillance video of the Nov. 6 incident that turned out to be a man with a light gray hooded sweatshirt walk Perez and stabbing him.

After Perez fell to the ground, the attacker plunged the knife into Perez’s body two more times before fleeing the scene with a black backpack. The video shows him stabbing the homeless man one last time before walking away.

Johnson and McKinley’s bail is set at $2 million, police said.
