An actor known for his roles in two "Power Rangers" TV series has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of his roommate.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Ricardo Medina Jr. was booked by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department on Saturday following an altercation at his home. Per the Times:

The incident began when Medina went to his bedroom with his girlfriend after getting into an argument with his roommate, Joshua Sutter, according to the Sheriff's Department.

Sutter, 36, followed and forced open the door to the bedroom; Medina took up a sword that he kept next to the door and fatally stabbed Sutter once in the abdomen, authorities said.


Medina reportedly called 911 himself, and told responding officers what happened. He was arrested, and his bail was set at $1 million.

Medina had previously starred as the Red Lion Wild Force Power Ranger in "Power Rangers Wild Force" in 2002, and also voiced the character Deker on "Power Rangers Samurai" from 2012-2013. His agent, Gar Lester, told the Times that Medina is "a great guy" and found the accusations against him difficult to believe.
