STANTON (CNS) - A man was stabbed to death Saturday in Stanton and two suspects were later arrested.

The man in his 40s was stabbed multiple times about 12:45 a.m. in the 7000 block of Katella Avenue, said Orange County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Jaimee Blashaw.

"He was quickly transported to a nearby hospital, however, the victim was later pronounced deceased," Blashaw said.

Sheriff's homicide detectives responded to the scene, she said.

"Based on the interviews conducted by investigators and the evidence at the scene, Mustafa Mohamedat Mohamed, 37, of Westminster and Amro Mahmoud Abdelfattah Shahin, 37, of Santa Ana were arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail on suspicion of murder," Blashaw said.

The victim's name was not expected to be released until the coroner's office notifies relatives of the death, she said.
