NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A citizen’s tip to a Metro detective led to the arrest of a suspect Friday morning for the March stabbing death of a man in south Nashville.
Metro police reported 26-year-old Aristoteles Aleman fatally stabbed Marvin Campos, 33, after arguing at a bar in the 1000 block of Murfreesboro Pike on March 26.
According to authorities, Campos left a bar around 3:15 a.m. and was found injured by a passerby at the intersection of Murfreesboro Pike and East Thompson Lane a short time later.
Campos was escorted from the bar after the argument with Aleman, according to police.
Aleman reportedly attacked Campos in front of a nearby laundromat and stabbed him in the back.
According to an affidavit, the incident was captured on surveillance video at the laundromat.
An investigation led to the identification of Aleman as the suspect and authorities reportedly learned he was planning to flee to Texas and Mexico.
Detectives went to Aleman’s residence where he allegedly implicated himself as the person who stabbed Campos. A jacket and shoes worn by Aleman at the time of the stabbing were also found inside his apartment, according to police.
Aleman was booked into the Metro jail and charged with criminal homicide. His bond was set at $500,000.
