Scottsdale police arrested a man in connection with the stabbing death of an elderly man after an altercation inside a home in north Scottsdale’s exclusive Grayhawk neighborhood Tuesday evening, authorities said.
Police responded to a residence inside the Raptor at Grayhawk about 6:30 p.m., and arrested the suspect, described to be in his 40s or 50s, in connection with stabbing the father of his girlfriend during an argument, according to Scottsdale police.
After stabbing the elderly man, the suspect then attacked his girlfriend, but she was able to escape from the residence and ran to a neighbor’s house where she called police, according to Scottsdale police officer Dave Pubins.
The home is located in the gated community near the Grayhawk Golf Course in the area of Thompson Peak Parkway, where police arrested the suspect without incident and are continuing to investigate the slaying.
The names of those involved in the incident were not immediately available late Tuesday.
