A man who is accused of repeatedly stabbing multiple victims outside of a restaurant in California has been arrested in Butler County.

Richard Michael Pervier, 32, was wanted for three counts of attempted murder after the alleged stabbings outside of a Denny's in California in September. He was arrested Friday morning on Jericho Lane in Milford Township.

The Butler County Sheriff's Office says they had been working closely with the U.S. Marshal's Office and the Ukiah, Calif. Police Department over the past two months to locate and arrest Pervier.

Pervier was arrested without incident after police received a tip on his whereabouts and was taken to the Butler County Jail, where he will await extradition.
