A suspect was behind bars Friday in connection with the stabbing death last week of a 67-year-old man at a Mission Valley transient camp, authorities reported.

Sekou Torre Bullock, 37, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of murdering Monty Proulx of San Diego, who was found dead in an open area off the 8800 block of Friars Road on the morning of April 3, according to San Diego Police.

Noting suspicious wounds to the dead man’s upper body, patrol officers called in homicide detectives, Lt. Anthony Dupree said.

Police have disclosed no suspected motive. The relationship, if any, between the suspect and victim is unknown.

Bullock was booked into San Diego Central Jail. He was being without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
