From the Las Vegas Review Journal (March 28, 2022): A man accused of fatally stabbing an off-duty police officer on the Las Vegas Strip over the weekend was arrested twice in the past year on the Strip in connection with acts of violence, according to police and court records.

Freddy Allen, 58, was arrested on suspicion of murder in the Saturday night attack on a pedestrian bridge at Las Vegas Boulevard South and Tropicana Avenue.

Las Vegas police said in an arrest report for Allen that he stabbed Edmonds, Washington, officer Tyler Steffins on the bridge connecting the New York-New York and the MGM Grand during a brief quarrel between Steffins and another man over Steffins petting some dogs on the bridge.
