Quebec tourist found fatally stabbed in Hollywood, Florida

Police in South Florida have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the death of a Quebec tourist whose body was found on a sidewalk. Hollywood police spokesman Lt. Osvaldo Perez says they received a report early Sunday morning about a body along Jefferson Street, just east of Federal Highway.

He says the man had been stabbed and the death has been ruled a homicide.

The victim has been identified as 58-year-old Domenico Perruccio.

Perez says police have notified his family and Canadian consulate officials.

Police say an arrest warrant has been issued for 37-year-old Twane Dobard, and they 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.
