The Prince George’s County Police have released the name of a suspect who is linked to the fatal Popeye’s stabbing case in Maryland. Ricoh McClain, 30, has been accused of stabbing Kevin Tyrell Davis on the 4th of November, at Livingston Road at the Oxon Hill Plaza.
The police believe that he is still in the area and have identified him in the last week. Commander Brian Reilly said in a statement that Mr. McClain maintains a Washington DC residence along with one in Maryland.
Davis cut the line in front of people to acquire the chicken sandwich available at the Popeye’s at Oxon Hill. When Davis got into an argument about this, they went to the parking lot where McClain stabbed Davis and ran.
So far there has been no indication that the men knew each other. Davis died an hour after being stabbed.
Surveillance images have aided the police in identifying the culprit and he is now being charged with first-degree murder, second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment.
The police have warned that he may be armed and dangerous and should not be approached directly. 911 should be contacted if he is seen. He has been seen with a woman at the time of the stabbing but she has not been charged or called in at all.
One day after Popeye’s resumed the sale of their popular chicken sandwich, the stabbing has taken place as a testament to the great taste. Launched in August, the sandwich has caused a lot of long lines and exhaustion of supplies by the end of the month.
