HARRIS COUNTY, Texas – Two suspects have been arrested but another is still on the loose following the fatal stabbing of a man in Harris County.

Police said Angel Cuevas, 28, was found stabbed to death in the 6739 block of Fairway # 7 February 6 around 3:10 a.m.

Authorities’ investigation led to the arrest of 14- and 16-year-old boys, who were initially charged with stealing Cuervas’ truck. The boys told police they were with Cuervas and 19-year-old Angel Cantu at Cantu’s apartment when Cantu and Cuevas began arguing about money.

Cantu began beating on Cuevas, who attempted to jump out of the apartment through a closed window. Cantu stopped Cuevas from fleeing and stabbed him several times with a knife, according to police. He died at the scene.

Anyone with information on Cantu’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
