The San Jose Police Department has arrested two suspects in the January 26, 2014 murder of  Richard Phan that occurred on the 3400 block of Suncrest Avenue in San Jose.  On January 26, 2014 at approximately 1:24 A.M., the San Jose Police Department's 9-1-1 communications center received a report of a person stabbed.  Officers arrived on scene and located the victim, later identified as Richard Phan, suffering from at least one stab wound.  The victim was transported to a local area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Homicide detectives arrived on scene and took over the investigation.  Thorough investigations lead to the identification and the arrest of  twin brothers who were invited to the birthday celebration by a guest of the host.
