Police arrested three suspects over the weekend for the fatal beating death of 23-year-old Kevin Kless. One of the suspects, 20-year-old Steven Ferguson, is from Fox Chase.

Ferguson, of the 1100-block of Solly Avenue, was arrested alongside Felix Crarillo of North Philadelphia and Kenneth Santiago of Juniata for Kless’ Jan. 14 death.

Kless was at Fourth and Chestnut streets with two women when he reportedly exchanged words with a cab driver. The three suspects then allegedly left their vehicle that had been behind the cab and began beating Kless.

Further details have not been released regarding what led to the fatal assault.
