ST. LOUIS — A man has died after having his throat cut in south St. Louis near the border of the Mount Pleasant and Carondelet neighborhoods.
Police were called to the 400 block of Eichelberger Street at about 4:20 p.m. for the report of a crash with a person hit. Officers said they arrived to find the victim next to a car with multiple stab wounds. On Saturday, police said the man's throat was cut.
On Sunday, police identified the victim as Steven Tyrell Hill of the 4400 block of Shaw. He was 20 years old.
Police arrested Alipasha Ibragimov, a 26-year-old man from south St. Louis County. He's been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Bond was denied.
Clarissa Hayes said the incident happened right behind her home. She said she saw Hill's body on the ground.
"I thought he got beat to death," Hayes said.
Hayes, who has lived in the neighborhood for two years, said the nature of the incident makes the situation particularly disturbing.
"What could be going through your mind to make you have so much anger to make you slit somebody's throat and stab them up like that?" Hayes said.
Witnesses told 5 On Your Side that Hill was stabbed after an altercation with another man. They said they believe both men were employees of a moving company that was hired to move a business out of its building. Hill's body was found behind the Schmidt Equipment and Supple building.
5 On Your Side reached out to Shmidt and the moving company and is awaiting responses.
