A 21-year-old man who police say is in the country illegally was arrested yesterday and charged in the stabbing death of a man last month in East Baltimore. Police also made an arrest in another fatal stabbing that occurred at a Hampden bar over the weekend.

Eddy M. Castillo-Diaz, a native of Honduras who lists an address in the 100 block of N. Ellwood Ave., is charged with first-degree murder, assault and a weapons count in the death of Jose Escobar-Pena, who was stabbed in the abdomen just after 2 a.m. Feb. 22 in the 3500 block of Eastern Ave.

Police arrested Lewis Brock, 27, of the 900 block of Bethune Road in an incident Sunday in which one man was killed and another injured.

Police responded about 1:30 a.m. to the 1500 block of Clipper Road and found Nelson Gause suffering from a stab wound to the neck and another man suffering from multiple stab wounds to the head, back and hand, records show.

Gause, 29, was pronounced dead at Sinai Hospital as a result of his injuries.

Records show that he was stabbed in Kolper's Restaurant and Lounge after arguing with two men.

Another man, Michael Pryor, followed two men out of the bar and was stabbed several times after confronting them.

Brock is charged with first-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder.
