A 31-year old man was arrested in connection to the stabbing of two members of Nicki Minaj's entourage.

The other week Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to grieve for the loss of a friend and entourage member, De'Von Pickett , who was stabbed in Philadelphia during "The Pinkprint" tour rehearsals. That wasn't the only member she was grieving for though, as another man, Eric Parker, was also stabbed during the incident and he is currently still in critical condition.

At the time that the news broke, we didn't have very many details on the situation other than the fact that it happened. Now police have made some headway in their investigation, and an arrest has been made. USA Today reports that Philadelphia native, 31-year-old Pierce Boykin, was arrested this past Monday on charges of attempted murder, aggravated assault and related offenses. It is unclear if police are still looking for another suspect.

The incident occurred outside a bar, after both victims were arguing inside the bar with another man. We'll keep you posted as the police investigation continues.
