A man was arrested for allegedly stabbing another man to death two days ago in Northeast Washington.

Antione Little, 42, is charged with first-degree murder (felony murder), according to Metropolitan Police.

On Tuesday, officers found 53-year-old Curtis Barnum with a stab wound in the 3700 block of Minnesota Avenue, NE.

Barnum was taken to an area hospital where he died. Investigators say Little stole Barnum's Ford F-150 truck after the stabbing.

Officers in the area spotted Little driving the truck and initiated a vehicle pursuit, but he escaped.

Police later found the truck and Little was arrested on Wednesday.
