Detectives Charge Suspect Wanted for Fatal Stabbing Outside of Restaurant; PGPD Seeks Community Assistance in Locating Him

Ricoh McClain
The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Homicide Unit today released the name of the man wanted for a fatal stabbing outside of an Oxon Hill fast food restaurant last week. He is 30-year-old Ricoh McClain. His last known address is the 5500 block of Marlboro Pike in District Heights. He’s charged with fatally stabbing 28-year-old Kevin Tyrell Davis of Oxon Hill. Anyone who knows McClain’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or detectives at 301-772-4925. 

(McClain)

On November 4th, at approximately 7:00 pm, patrol officers were called to the fast food restaurant in the 6200 block of Livingston Road for the report of a fight. They discovered Davis outside in the parking lot suffering from a single stab wound. He died a short time later at an area hospital.

The preliminary investigation reveals McClain and the victim got into a brief verbal argument after the victim cut in front of several customers waiting to order food. They both then got out of the line, walked out of the front door together and McClain immediately stabbed Davis. McClain then fled from the area.

McClain was first positively identified by a Prince George’s Police Officer who saw the surveillance images and recognized McClain from previous investigative stops. We also received multiple tips from the community.  We thank residents for their invaluable assistance.

McClain is charged with first degree murder, 2nd degree murder, 1st degree assault, 2nd degree assault, and reckless endangerment. He is considered armed and dangerous, if you see him, please do not approach him, please call 911.   

If anyone has information relevant to this investigation, they are asked to please call detectives 301-772-4925.  Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477), or go online at www.pgcrimesolvers.com, or use the “P3 Tips” mobile app (search “P3 Tips” in the Apple Store or Google Play to download the app onto your mobile device.)



PGPD Investigating Second Targeted Residential Robbery in College Park in Two Weeks

The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating a residential armed robbery that occurred in College Park on Monday night. Preliminarily, detectives believe the suspects targeted the victims because, at least, one of the victims is involved with the illegal sale of marijuana.

On November 11th, at approximately 7:15 pm, three suspects broke into the home in the 7400 block of Dickinson Avenue. At least two of the suspects had guns. The suspects demanded cash from the residents. Once they got the money, the suspects fled the home. No one was hurt.

The previous residential robbery occurred on October 30th on the same street, in the 7500 block of Dickinson Avenue at 10:40 pm.  Preliminarily, detectives believe the house was targeted by two unknown suspects because, at least, one of the victims was involved in the illegal sale of marijuana. 

“We wanted to address our community because we know there is concern, but we want to reiterate that these are not random crimes at all.  So far the investigation has revealed the robberies, in both cases, surround individuals who are engaged in the illegal sale of marijuana and were targeted as a result of those criminal pursuits and activities,” said Chief Hank Stawinski.

At this time, there is no link between the victims in either case, however, detectives are working to determine whether the same suspects are responsible for both crimes.  

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call 301-772-4905.
