Police announced Wednesday an arrest has been made in last month's fatal stabbing of an Omaha man.

Twenty-one-year-old Cedric Hatten was taken into custody Tuesday and faces charges of second-degree murder and use of a weapon to commit a felony.

He's accused of assaulting 74-year-old Paul Riederer near South 27th Street and St. Marys Avenue just after midnight on August 20th. Riederer told police he had been involved in a confrontation with two people.

He was taken to Alegent Creighton University Medical Center for treatment. Riederer's condition deteriorated after he reached the hospital and he died later that morning.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to call police at 402-444-5652.
