Redwood City police made an arrest in connection with a homicide in Courthouse Square on Tuesday.

About 8:25 p.m., officers arrived to the scene in the 2200 block of Broadway on reports of a stabbing, police said. They found a 32-year-old Redwood City man suffering from at least one stab wound.

The victim was taken to Stanford Hospital, where he died, police said.
