Authorities arrested a Hemet man on suspicion of murder Wednesday, officials said.
Hyder Mahdi Jaffer, 51, was arrested in connection with the killing of Inder Jit, 63, who died from a stab wound to the chest in December, the Hemet Police Department said.
On Dec. 30, authorities responded to the 1300 block of East Oakland Avenue for a medical aid, according to the department.
They arrived to find an unresponsive man, later identified as Jit, inside a vehicle suffering from a stab wound to the chest, police said. Jit died at the scene, according to officials.
Investigators interviewed a person of interest the day after the incident, and later issued an arrest warrant for Jaffer, police said.
At about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, investigators arrested Jaffer on the same block where the homicide occurred in December. He is being charged with second-degree murder, county booking records show.
It was not immediately clear what the relationship between the suspect and the victim was.
Jaffer is being held at a Riverside County detention center on $1 million bail.
