SPRING VALLEY (CNS) - A 32-year-old man was arrested Thursday morning in connection with the fatal stabbing of a 30-year-old alleged acquaintance in Spring Valley overnight.

Hector Ivan Hernandez-Romero was arrested on suspicion of murder at a residence in the 3200 block of Central Avenue in Spring Valley about 5:50 a.m., according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Dennis Brugos.

Hernandez-Romero allegedly went unannounced to another Spring Valley residence -- in the 700 block of Sacramento Avenue -- about 8:10 p.m. Wednesday and argued with the 30-year-old victim before stabbing him with a knife, Brugos said.

The victim, who was visiting some at the Sacramento Avenue residence, was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead at 8:42 p.m. His name was withheld pending notification of his next of kin.
