A man wanted in connection to a fatal throat slashing inside an Upper Darby bar is now in custody.
Miguel Escalon, 23, was arrested early Saturday morning and charged in the death of Wilson Aquirre.
On October 9, Escalon allegedly slashed Aquirre's throat during a fight inside La Cantina Bar on the 6800 block of Market Street in Upper Darby. Aquirre died from his injuries four days later.
Investigators identified Escalon as the suspect. Police found him inside a home on the 2300 block of South 64th Street in Southwest Philly around 4 a.m. Saturday after receiving a tip he was playing cards inside the house.
Escalon is originally from Honduras as was Aquirre. According to police, Escalon was an illegal immigrant.
Officials have not yet revealed the specific charges against Escalon or his bail information.
