Two Maryland teenagers who are suspected gang members have been arrested and charged in the murder of a 23-year-old Virginia man.
Prince George’s County Police said they arrested Maicol Alvarado-Baide and Erlin Andrades-Zelaya in the fatal stabbing of Yefrin Argueta of Arlington last month.
The two suspects are both 18 years old and from Oxon Hill. They are charged with first- and second-degree murder and being held without bond.
The murder happened around 10:45 p.m. on Feb. 25 in the 1100 block of Marcy Avenue in Oxon Hill.
When officers arrived on the scene they found Argueta outside. He was suffering from stab wounds. He was transported to an area hospital where he pronounced dead a short time later.
Both of the teenage suspects are said to have known the victim, according to police. Authorities said they are trying to figure out a motive. Officials did not specify what gang the suspects are believed to be a part of.
