Daniel Perez-Munoz, 21, was accused of killing Phuong “Bob” Huynh, 52, of Garden Grove, according to a news release from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

Sheriff’s deputies responded at 7:20 p.m. Saturday to the 8100 block of Garden Grove Boulevard (map) after receiving a report of a man lying in an alleyway, sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Jeff Hallock said.

Deputies located Huynh, who died as a result of multiple stab wounds, officials said.

“The preliminary investigation revealed that Huynh was stabbed during an unprovoked altercation with Perez-Munoz in the alleyway,” authorities said in the news release. “Based on witness statements and evidence recovered at the scene, Perez-Munoz was located and detained a short time later, less than a mile from the scene.”

Perez-Munoz was questioned and later arrested. He was booked into the Orange County Jail and was being held on $1 million bail, officials said. The suspect was scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

Anyone with information about this case was asked to call Orange County Sheriff’s Department homicide investigators at (714) 647-7044 or (714) 647-7000.
