Santa Maria Police arrest two suspects in deadly stabbing

     Santa Maria Police have arrested two suspects in connection with Friday's deadly stabbing of 32 year-old Alberto Diaz of Guadalupe.
      They say two more suspects are still at large.
      Police say 29 year-old Gabriel Almaguer of Santa Maria was arrested and booked for one count of murder, Saturday. He was already in custody from an unrelated drug charge from Friday night.
     Also arrested... 19 year-old Jacob Brewer of Santa Maria.
     Detectives spotted Brewer in a vehicle near Broadway and Donovan. They followed the vehicle to Broadway and Western where they performed a high-risk enforcement stop.
     Both suspects were booked into Santa Barbara County Jail with bail set at $1-million dollars.
     Police say 20 year-old Christopher Brewer (Jacob's brother) and 24 year-old Rudy Ramos of Santa Maria are also suspects in the case and remain at large.
     Detectives say Diaz was confronted by the four suspects in the 100 block of E. Bunny St.
     They say one of the suspects stabbed him with a knife, and all four suspects ran from the scene.
     Diaz died later Friday night from injuries.
     Santa Maria Police say Christopher Brewer and Rudy Ramos are aware of their wanted status and should be considered armed and dangerous.
    Anyone with information is urged to call Santa Maria Police.
