A man was stabbed by his brother Saturday morning across from Fresno City College, according to Fresno Police.

At around 10:48 a.m., officers were dispatched to an apartment in the 1500 block of North Van Ness Avenue across from Fresno City College regarding a stabbing victim.

A 30-year-old man was found suffering from two stab wounds, one to his right forearm, and the other through his right hand, according Lt. Joe Gomez with the Fresno Police Department.

The victim told officers his 23-year-old brother, Desmond Louis, attacked him with a kitchen knife after an argument.

After the stabbing, he says his brother fled on foot and possibly took a FAX bus to the River Park area.

An officer assigned to the FAX bus route learned that a person matching the suspect’s description had been on a bus already and was dropped off at a bus shelter in River Park and was waiting there for another bus.

When officers arrived they located Louis on a a bus, and upon contact, Louis immediately turned around, got on his knees, and put his hands behind his back in a handcuffing position.

He was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, terrorist threats and he is also being investigated for elder abuse.

He was booked into Fresno County Jail.
