The individual responsible for stabbing Cash App founder, Bob Lee, has been apprehended and identified as Nima Momeni.
The San Francisco Police Department made the arrest early Thursday morning following an operation outside of the city’s borders.
The arrest comes over a week after Lee was found bleeding out in San Francisco’s Rincon Hill neighbourhood just before 3am on 4 April.
It is believed that Lee and Momeni knew each other before the stabbing and the two may have been driving together through the downtown area in the early morning hours of April 4.
The two were driving together in a car registered to Momeni on April 4 when a confrontation occurred, Mission Local reported.
The argument continued when Lee exited the vehicle and Momeni allegedly stabbed Lee multiple times with a knife.
Nima Momeni was taken into custody in Emeryville.
