Hamilton Police say they have arrested and charged four individuals in relation to the stabbing death 20-year-old Brock Beck this past summer.
According to a release sent Thursday afternoon (Nov. 26), three young men were arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree murder. Police say the arrests were made through a “coordinated effort.”
A fourth arrest was made Thursday afternoon, according to Det. Sgt. Steve Bereziuk, who provided a live media update on the case developments.
The arrests were made in both the City of Hamilton and the City of Brantford without incident.
In the very early morning hours of July 26, Hamilton Police say they were called to 3063 Binbrook Rd. in Binbrook.
When they arrived on the scene, they found Beck in the driveway suffering from stab wounds. He was rushed to hospital but succumbed to his injuries a short time later.
A 16-year-old youth was also injured in the attack but was treated at the hospital and released.
Bereziuk said it is believed Brock’s death is the result of a “road rage incident gone bad,” and that there is no known connection between Beck and those who have been arrested.
Beck’s family, who earlier this week offered a $20,000 reward to anyone who came forward with information into his murder that led to an arrest, were notified of the arrests Thursday morning, according to Bereziuk, and were said to be gratified with the progress of the case.
The accused are expected to appear at the John Sopinka Courthouse in Hamilton later Thursday.

- Cam-Thai Khath, 18-years-old, of Stoney Creek
- Petar Kunic, 19-years-old, of Stoney Creek
- Thomas Vasquez, 22-years-old, of Hamilton
