GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) - A woman reporting to work at a Garden Grove tea house saw a stranger inside gesturing at her to come in.

The Orange County Register reports Saturday that instead, the woman locked the door from the outside and called police, who found a 24-year-old member of the cleaning crew dead inside of stab wounds.

Suspect 20-year-old Robert Gabriel Rodgers of Anaheim was unable to leave the locked restaurant and was arrested on suspicion of murder.

He is being held on $1 million in bail.

It wasn't immediately clear if Rodgers had an attorney.

The victim was identified as Ceaser Ramirez-Rafael of Garden Grove.

Ramirez-Rafael regularly cleaned the tea house before it opened.

Police are trying to determine if the victim and suspect knew each other.
