ROTTERDAM  - The Rotterdam-Rijnmond police have arrested the man suspected of stabbing an 18-year-old to death on the Persoonshaven last week.

The suspect, also 18, turned himself in to police on Sunday evening, the police department announced today. The suspect told police that the stabbing occurred after a "disagreement about a bicycle," a spokesperson says.

The neighbourhood was shocked at the murder of Rahman Ari (18) last Thursday evening. He was reportedly stabbed to death after making a comment about a stolen bike.

The Rotterdam-Rijnmond police say that the suspect claims the stabbing was related to the bicycle, but the exact reason is unclear. "There was an exchange of words and a hand gesture," the spokesperson said. "We are investigating the exact circumstances at the moment."
