Raymond “Sean” Strickland was in the Ada County Jail Tuesday evening, charged with aggravated battery — a felony — following an interview with police.
Nampa police initially named him as a person of interest in the Memorial Day stabbing of a 45-year-old man. They announced the arrest and charges just before 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The stabbing at about 8 p.m. Monday sent the victim to the hospital, where he was still recovering Tuesday evening. The man was found in the 900 block of Chicago Street with stab wounds. His medical condition was not available Tuesday; the victim asked police not to release his name, Sgt. Tim Riha said.
Members of the Greater Idaho Fugitive Task Force and an Ada County Sheriff’s Office team focused on neighborhood crime found Strickland around noon Tuesday near East Central Drive and Main Street in Meridian. He was detained without incident, according to Nampa police, who sent a detective to interview him shortly after.
Online court records show Strickland has other pending criminal charges in Canyon County, including possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and inattentive driving. All three are misdemeanors.
