FORDHAM HEIGHTS, Bronx (PIX11) — Two men were arrested after fatally stabbing a Bronx teenager police say was lured to his death by a girl on Facebook Friday evening.

According to police, 17-year-old Ricardo Romero was lured to an apartment building on Creston Avenue around 7 p.m., by a girl who added him on Facebook.

When Romero arrived to the scene, he was robbed and stabbed in the head and chest.

Romero stumbled a few doors away to E. 182 St. and then collapsed.

"He was a nice person," said the victim's sister Alma Romero. "Young kid but never drink or do drugs, nothing like that."

He was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Surveillance video led police to the two suspects, the victim's sister tells PIX11.

Police arrested 19-year-old Christian Juarez on charges including second-degree murder and robbery.

27-year-old Christopher Garcia was arrested on a charge of conspiracy.

Alma says the teenage girl tried to set up other meetings at the same location.

The girl is being questioned by police but no charges have been filed.

Romero and his family moved to the Bronx from Mexico nine years ago.
