Police have arrested two men and a juvenile in the stabbing death last week of a 33-year-old Oakland man who was attacked in downtown San Jose, a police spokesman said today.

Police were dispatched at about 2:15 a.m. last Tuesday to the area of South Market Street and Park Avenue where they found the victim, Michael Maynard, police Officer Albert Morales said.

Maynard, who was attacked by a group of suspects following an argument, died shortly afterward at a hospital from multiple stab wounds, Morales said.

A day after Maynard died, homicide detectives arrested Luis Garcia, 21, and Luis Alvarez, 20, both of San Jose, on suspicion of murder, according to Morales.

On Saturday, officers captured a third suspect, a 14-year-old boy, also of San Jose, police said.

The Police Department is asking anyone with information about the case to call homicide detectives at (408) 277-5283 or to leave an anonymous tip with Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-7867.
