Two men have been arrested in connection with last Sunday’s stabbing death of 37-year-old Apichat Sudsaneh of Thailand.
Detective Bill Clark of the EPS Homicide Section says, “We are hoping the family and friends of Sudsaneh can take some comfort from the arrests. They need to know that Sudsaneh’s death has impacted a lot of people.”
21-year-old Micheal John Stewart of no fixed address has been charged with one count of second degree murder, one count of robbery, one count of possession of a weapon and three breaches from Newfoundland.
18 year-old Kyle Anthony Brooks of no fixed address has been charged with one count of robbery and one count of assault.
Police are still looking for five other people who are persons of interest in connection with this incident. Images of the two males and three females were captured on video at the LRT Station at the Health Sciences platform across from the University of Alberta Hospital.
At approximately 1 a.m. on Sunday, June 6, 2010 two men were walking home when they were approached by a group of four to six white males in the area of 99 Street and 82 Avenue. The two men were surrounded by the group of males, who demanded money and then allegedly assaulted them.
The disturbance moved to the area east of 99 Street on 80 Avenue, in front of a house, where it appears three of the suspects continued to confront the two men. Friends of the two men being assaulted came to assist at that time. One of these friends was then stabbed and died as a result of his injuries.
