Yesterday at approximately 9:45 p.m., officers responded to the City Place Mall located at 8661 Colesville Road in Silver Spring for an assault that had just occurred.

Investigation has revealed that last night at approximately 9:35, a mall security guard was patrolling the food court area of the mall and observed a male suspect inside of the Brass Hen restaurant. The Brass Hen restaurant was closed for business at the time and no employees were present. When the guard confronted the suspect, the suspect climbed back over the restaurant counter and attempted to flee with a bag of chicken wings. A second security guard came to assist the first guard security guard and both attempted to detain the suspect.  The suspect bit the first security guard in the area of the upper arm and fled from the mall.  A description of the suspect was given to officers patrolling the area.

An officer looking for the suspect in the area of the mall observed him walking north on Colesville Road and took him into custody. The suspect appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. During questioning, the suspect admitted to taking the food and biting the security guard.

The suspect was transported to the Central Processing Unit and charged with crimes to include: second degree burglary, theft, and second degree assault. He is being identified as Michael K. Ray, age 50, of the 8200 block of Dixon Drive in Silver Spring.
