Police in South Florida have issued an arrest warrant for a suspect in the death of a Canadian tourist whose body was found on a sidewalk.

Hollywood police spokesman Lt. Osvaldo Perez says they received a report early Sunday morning about a body along Jefferson Street, just east of Federal Highway.

 He says the man had been stabbed and the death has been ruled a homicide.

The victim has been identified as 58-year-old Domenico Perruccio of Montreal.

Perez says police have notified his family and Canadian consulate officials.

37 year old Twane Dobard turned himself into police, in connection with the murder. 

 The police release did not specify a charge.
