Police in south Florida have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the death of a Montreal-area man whose body was found on a Hollywood, Fla., sidewalk.
Hollywood police spokesman Lt. Osvaldo Perez said they received a report early Sunday morning about a body along Jefferson Street, just east of Federal Highway. Hollywood is about 30 kilometres north of Miami.
Perez said the man had been stabbed and the death has been ruled a homicide.
The victim has been identified as 58-year-old Domenico Perruccio. CBC News has learned he lived in Saint-Constant, on Montreal's South Shore. The family is not giving interviews.
Perez said police have notified his family and Canadian Consulate officials.
An arrest warrant has been issued for 37-year-old Twane Dobard, and police are asking for the public's help in finding him. The police release did not specify a charge.
Local media reports quoted neighbours as saying Perruccio was waiting for his wife to arrive because the couple were supposed to leave on a cruise on Monday.
