Milwaukee Police have made two arrests in a fatal stabbing in a popular Milwaukee east side neighborhood early Monday morning. 

It happened at about 12:45 a.m. in the 1700 block of N. Pulaski.

A 32-year-old Milwaukee man was killed following an argument. Police say the victim and his attackers knew each other.

Two adult males were taken into custody. 

The incident happened one block north of Brady Street, near the corner of N. Pulaski and Arlington.

Derek Storch lives steps away from where the deadly stabbing happened.

"We heard them say, 'Get the (expletive) out of here.' He said that a couple of times," Storch said. 

No further details are available concerning the arrests. 

Luke Amann is worried for his 2-year-old son's safety. He heard about the nine armed robberies in this area last week,  and even though he's called the east side home for five years, he says it's time to go.

"Especially with George, my son. It's like you always have to look over your shoulder now. It feels like the vibe is worrisome. It's worrisome," Amann said.

Kathie Eilers disagrees. She's lived in Milwaukee for decades, and decided to move to the east side six years ago.

"When we first moved to Milwaukee, it was in terrible shape. I think people have worked really hard to make this a vibrant neighborhood that people like coming to,"  Eilers said.

Police say no arrest have been made in the string of armed robberies.
