McDonald's Stabbing Suspect Arrested

For Immediate Release: Wednesday, January 11, 2023

Gaithersburg, MD - The suspect wanted in connection with multiple stabbings at a McDonald’s restaurant has been arrested.

34-year-old Theodore Andrew Brandy was taken into custody at approximately 12:45 p.m. on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.

Brandy allegedly stabbed three adult males the morning of Tuesday, January 10, inside of a McDonald’s in the 8400 block of Colesville Road.

When fire rescue and officers arrived, two adult males were found with non-life-threatening injuries. Both victims were transported to an area hospital. A third person, also an adult male, was injured and left the scene. He eventually returned and notified police of his injuries. The third victim was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Brandy, who has no known address, had been identified as a possible suspect and 3rd District officers actively canvassed downtown Silver Spring, talking to business owners and patrons. Through the officers’ community engagement, they received a tip from an employee of an area business and located Brandy at City Place Mall, where he was taken into custody without incident.

A warrant has been requested with charges to include three counts of first-degree assault, three counts of attempted murder and possession of a weapon.
