Police arrest stabbing suspect at Somerset
By Terry Oparka email@example.com
A 28-year-old Ecorse man faces felony charges after allegedly stabbing an acquaintance just outside the doors of Somerset Collection at 8:10 p.m. July 8.
According to reports, Mario Terrell Ridgeway and three acquaintances drove to the shopping center to purchase a number of phone plans and iPhones at the Apple Store. One of the four acquaintances was providing the money for all of the planned purchases, according to reports.
Troy police Capt. Bob Redmond said the four said they had to take turns driving on the way to Somerset Collection because none of them had a valid driver’s license and “none of them wanted to get caught.”
“They were planning to buy the phones for $199 and sell them on the street at a much higher price,” Redmond said.
Due to credit checks, only one of the four was qualified to purchase the iPhones, and he purchased four iPhones and plans, Redmond said.
They completed the purchase and left the store, and an argument ensued over money outside, according to reports.
Ridgeway reportedly pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the back outside the doors of the north side of the shopping center as the victim tried to flee. Ridgeway then chased the victim back into the shopping center and stabbed him two more times. Ridgeway fled the scene, according to witnesses.
Troy police located and arrested Ridgeway shortly after the incident as he walked on the north side of Macy’s. Police found a folding knife with blood on it in Ridgeway’s pants pocket, according to reports.
Ridgeway was arraigned on felonious assault in 52-4 District Court July 10. He appeared in court without an attorney and requested a court-appointed attorney. Bond was set at $50,000 cash/surety.
