BRIGHTON — Brighton police say they arrested two men on suspicion of murder after a stabbing victim identified one of them as his attacker before the victim died.

Police say 22-year-old Francisco Javier Moran died at a hospital after police found him covered with blood at a Brighton mobile home park Thursday.

Authorities said Friday that before Moran lost consciousness, he told officers his attacker was 18-year-old Hector Guadalupe Alvarez-Martinon.

Investigators say Moran was attacked while he, Alvarez and 21-year-old Alex Hernandez were driving around Brighton. Investigators say Moran ran from the car after he was stabbed and was chased by the other two men.

Alvarez and Hernandez were being held without bail. It wasn't immediately known whether they had attorneys.
