RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Rapid City police have arrested a 54-year-old man in the fatal stabbing of another man in an alleyway.

Police say the suspect faces potential charges of first-degree murder and aggravated assault on law enforcement, for allegedly waving a knife at officers.

Police were called late Monday about an unconscious man lying in the alley. Police arrived to find one man unconscious and bleeding on the ground and another man sitting on the ground.

Police say as CPR was performed on the unconscious man, the other man refused to give the officer enough room. When a second officer arrived, the man brandished a knife and had to be subdued with a stun gun.

The unconscious man, identified as 53-year-old Fredrick Ladeaux of Rapid City, was declared dead. The other man was taken to jail.
