Officers in Nassau County responded to the back of the Fuego Picante Restaurant Y Bar on Front Street in Uniondale shortly before 4 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 5, where there was a report of an unresponsive man on the ground outside the building.

According to police, the 24-year-old man was located by officers on the sidewalk outside the restaurant with multiple stab wounds. He was transported to an area hospital and later pronounced dead.

The investigation led to the arrest of a 17-year-old teen from Roosevelt - whose name has not been released - and Roosevelt resident Jose Alcivar Tuarez, age 18, police said. 

The two were taken into custody without incident by Nassau County Police detectives.
