Man Arrested In Fatal Stabbing Of Security Guard At Doral Restaurant

A man was taken into custody Monday after police say he fatally stabbed a security guard at a Latin American restaurant in Doral last month.

Luis Hernandez, 33, faces a charge of second-degree murder with a deadly weapon.

Miami-Dade police said Hernandez killed 43-year-old Juan Rodriguez after he denied Hernandez entry to La Orquidea Restaurant on Southwest 40th Street.

According to an arrest affidavit, Hernandez arrived with another man when Rodriguez refused to let them inside "due to previous incidents" at the restaurant. As Rodriguez escorted them into the parking lot, Hernandez lunged at Rodriguez from behind and stabbed him in the chest.

Rodriguez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hernandez ran away after the stabbing, but police said several witnesses identified him as the attacker.

Hernandez was taken to the Miami-Dade Police Department for questioning on Monday. 

He was then arrested and booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
