LAS VEGAS >> Las Vegas police have arrested a seventh person after the stabbing of a British tourist at a business police say was marketed as a health spa but operated a prostitution scam.

Records show that 33-year-old Kenneth Stimpson was held Friday at the Clark County jail pending a court appearance on conspiracy, racketeering, fraud and other charges.

Five women and a man were arrested shortly after 25-year-old Joseph Sherriff was stabbed early last Sunday in a dispute over sex acts that police say were hinted at but not performed.

Prostitution is legal in some rural Nevada counties, but not in Las Vegas and Reno.
