HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say an arrest has been made in the death of a man killed as he was walking home from his brother’s wedding in Pennsylvania’s capital.

Police in Harrisburg said Saturday that a suspect had been arrested and further details would be released later.

Thirty-two-year-old Steven Esworthy was found lying on a sidewalk and bleeding early on the morning of June 19 and died before emergency crews could arrive. An autopsy concluded that he died of a blow to the back of the head.

A witness told police they saw a man approaching Esworthy with a stick and later searching through the Lower Paxton Township resident’s pockets after he was down. Surveillance video of a suspect was released Tuesday.
