An third suspect in the stabbing of Barnard College student Tessa Majors was arrested Wednesday in New York City.

Luchiano Lewis, 14, reportedly turned himself in to the New York Police Department Wednesday, his lawyer at his side, for the Dec. 11 stabbing. He had been interviewed about the stabbing early on but was released.

The youth reportedly will be charged as an adult and was to be arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court. Police reportedly conducted a search of his home shortly after he turned himself in.

Luchiano is the third suspect arrested for the stabbing of Tessa Majors, 18, in Morningside Park in Harlem. She was seen passing through the park that morning when she was mugged by three teenage suspects and stabbed multiple times. A Barnard security officer found her bleeding by park stairs and called police.

Majors was rushed to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital in critical condition, but was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.

Zyairr Davis, 13, was the first alleged suspect arrested in the stabbing. He was arrested on Dec. 13 after officers brought him in for questioning. He allegedly confessed to the mugging, saying he and his two accomplices snuck up on Majors to swipe her bag before stabbing her multiple times. However, he did not provide the names of his accomplices at the time and said one of the alleged accomplices was the alleged knifeman.

The alleged knifeman, identified as Rashaun Weaver, 14, was arrested on Friday near his home in Harlem. He is being charged as an adult and is facing charges of robbery and murder.

“What we can do is say that we are confident that we have the person in custody who stabbed her,” NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea told reporters on Friday.
