TULSA, Okla. - Tulsa police are investigating a homicide near 46th and Sheridan in East Tulsa and tell us they have arrested a suspect and identified the victim.
FOX23 learned the victim was 34-year-old Juan Luis Mendoza. Officers told FOX23 they collected enough evidence to arrest the victim's brother-in-law, Pedro Castro, for murder.
Officers say Castro, 28, and Mendoza's wife got into a fight at a home, and the woman's husband broke it up. Castro left, but returned later and attacked Mendoza with his skateboard. Mendoza defended himself with a bat but Castro disarmed him and used that as a weapon as well.
Police tell us Mendoza also received several stab wounds. Police say the suspect tried to get away on the skateboard, but officers found him about a mile away from the crime scene.
