Man Suspected of Fatal Stabbing in Tenderloin Arrested During Traffic Stop

A man wanted on suspicion of stabbing a man who died more than a week later was arrested this evening during a traffic stop in San Francisco’s Portola district, police said tonight.

The traffic stop occurred around 6 p.m. in the area Burrows and Madison streets near McLaren Park. The suspect has been identified as Nester Conchola, 22, of San Francisco.

Conchola allegedly stabbed 29-year-old Joseph Razo in the Tenderloin on Jan. 25. Razo died of his injuries Tuesday night.

Police said they also seized evidence while serving a search warrant in the first block of Lydia Street at roughly the same time as the traffic stop.

Police said the stabbing occurred in the vicinity of Sutter and Taylor streets in the Tenderloin while Razo and another victim were in an early morning fight with six men and a woman, all of whom were thought to be in their 20s.

Anyone with additional information about the case is asked to call the San Francisco Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. Tips can also be texted to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
