AKRON -- After posting a video on YouTube of a suspect involved in a fatal stabbing over the weekend, Akron Police say they have their man in custody.

Rudolph Ammons III, 29, of South Arlington Street, was reportedly identified and arrested without incident around 8:30 a.m. today in the 700 block of East Buchtel Avenue.

He has been charged with aggravated murder and felonious assault for the death of Anthony Hargrove, 30, who had been stabbed multiple times around 1 a.m. Sunday.

Akron police say Hargrove attempted to walk over to Akron City Hospital following the stabbing on South Adams Street where he was found on a park bench outside the hospital. Hargrove was later pronounced dead after he was taken inside.

On Tuesday, Akron Police released a video (see below) of the suspect riding a dark-colored BMX Huffy bicycle eastbound on East Bucthel Avenue.

That person, believed to be Ammons, has been booked into the Summit County Jail.
