PHOENIX (AP) - Federal authorities say a man wanted in connection with a machete killing in California last week has been arrested in Arizona.

U.S. Marshals Service officials say 22-year-old Vincent Garza-Salas was taken into custody Thursday evening in Phoenix.

San Diego police say Garza-Salas allegedly attacked 43-year-old Vincete Carrera outside a home in Rolando.

They say Carrera was a frequent visitor to the house and he reportedly suffered head injuries that led to his death.

A motive for the attack wasn’t released, but San Diego homicide investigators described Garza-Salas as violent, a heavy methamphetamine user and known to carry knives.

Garza-Salas fled San Diego and authorities say he was seen leaving a Phoenix home on a skateboard and arrested without incident.

He’s being held in a Phoenix jail awaiting extradition to California.
