D.C. police have made arrests in two separate homicides, one that occurred this month in the Fairlawn neighborho­od and the other in August near the Gallery Place Metro station in Chinatown.

Police on Wednesday said they arrested Garland Davis, 64, in connection to the death of Johnathan Craig.

Craig, 34, was fatally stabbed March 9 in the 1600 block of 17th Place SE.

A witness told police that Davis stabbed Craig inside the witness’s bedroom, after Davis had asked the witness if they wanted to be with him and the witness replied, “No, I am dating [Craig]”, according to charging documents.

Davis’s attorney could not be immediatel­y reached.

On Wednesday, D.C. police also arrested 25-year-old Dwayne Brooks Jr. in the killing of 21year-old Juwaan Henry.

Henry was fatally shot Aug. 25 near the Gallery PlaceChina­town Metro station. At the time, Henry’s mother, reached at her home in Charlotte, said that her son had not been in the D.C. area for long and that she knew nothing about the shooting.

There was no attorney listed for Brooks in court records.
