Omaha police arrested a suspect Tuesday in connection with the August killing of a 74-year-old man.
Cedric Hatten, 21, was booked on suspicion of second-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony in the stabbing death of Paul J. Riederer.
The stabbing occurred late Aug. 19 or early Aug. 20.
It is unclear where the stabbing happened. After he was stabbed, Riederer walked to his apartment building and collapsed.
When officers arrived at the building, Jackson Tower at 600 S. 27th St., Riederer said he had been involved in a confrontation with two men, police said.
Riederer died at Creighton University Medical Center on Aug. 20.
Hatten had been working recently at an Omaha temporary employment agency.
A neighbor who spoke to Riederer after he collapsed said he told her he was assaulted as he walked with a woman near his home.
