HOLYOKE, Mass. (AP) — Holyoke police have arrested a second suspect accused of stabbing and robbing a store owner last year.

The 27-year-old Aldeco is charged with assault with intent to murder and assault by means of a dangerous weapon.

The owner of the clothing store was stabbed at least a dozen times. The knife blade eventually broke, preventing more severe injuries.

Aldeco was held without bail. It was not known Monday if he’s represented by a lawyer and he does not have a listed phone number.
