A 65 year old Oxnard man died this morning from complications due to a stab wound sustained yesterday evening.

During the investigation, Detectives were successful in identifying the suspect responsible for the stabbing. The suspect was identified as 54 year old Salvador Medina Tena of Oxnard. On 2-17-10 at 1130 hours, officers spotted Tena walking in the 300 block of East 5th St. The suspect was contacted and taken into custody without incident.
