San Diego police announced an arrest in the fatal stabbing of a man in the heart of downtown San Diego.

Officers say a 52-year-old man was assaulted June 13 along the 600-block of Market Street outside the CVS Pharmacy on the bottom level of the Alta condo high-rise.

On Wednesday, investigators announced an arrest in the case.

Justin St. John, 34, of San Diego was arrested Monday on an unrelated charge.

Officials say they have identified him as the suspect in last week's stabbing and he will be arraigned on a murder charge Thursday.

The victim’s name is being withheld until family members can be notified.
