Tucson police arrested a second suspect in the Chariot Pizza stabbing earlier this month.

Police arrested David Ryan Howe in connection with the incident.

Police previously arrested suspect Alex Joseph Haider.

A local restaurant manager is recovering after being stabbed six times while closing up shop late on a Thursday night.
 
It happened around 11 p.m. at Chariot Pizza on the Northwest Side, according to owner Charles Ryan.
 
The attack was caught on security cameras -- but the two people were wearing bandanas, long sleeves, and hats to mask their identities.
 
The owner explained the two people came in through the back door and pepper sprayed an employee. While he was blinded -- they went behind the bar and tackled the manager, and proceeded to stab him six times. They chased the employee who was pepper sprayed out, then back in and made him hide underneath a sink before they left -- with no money.
