SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A witness says the man who was stabbed to death near a San Jose bar was an off-duty bouncer who went after his alleged attacker.

Johnny Van Wyk, the owner of Johnny V's in downtown San Jose, told the San Jose Mercury News the suspect was asked to leave the bar before Wednesday's stabbing because he was harassing women.

Van Wyk said the man left, taking a set of knives he arrived with.

According to the bar owner, the off-duty bouncer also left the bar and went after the suspect for an unknown reason. Bar staff found him suffering from a stab wound.

Police say the suspect was arrested a short distance away, and the knife used in the attack recovered. They have not identified the victim or suspect.
