BRAINTREE, Mass. (TCD) — A 26-year-old man arrested last week for allegedly injuring several people during a stabbing spree at a McDonald’s and a movie theater is now believed to be connected to a Connecticut homicide.

According to the Braintree Police Department, on May 25 at around 6 p.m., a male suspect walked past the ticket counter at the AMC Braintree 10 and entered a theater. While inside, he stabbed four girls, ages 9 to 17, in an “unprovoked” attack. The suspect then fled in a black SUV. Paramedics and police arrived at the scene, and the girls were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office identified the suspect as Jared Ravizza.

Detectives looked through surveillance footage and determined Ravizza was no longer in the city, but they managed to track his license plate.

About an hour after the movie theater stabbings, another incident occurred at a McDonald’s drive-thru in a rest area in Plymouth. The district attorney’s office said police started receiving calls from the fast-food chain at approximately 7 p.m. reporting that two employees had been stabbed.

Surveillance footage allegedly shows Ravizza pulling up to the drive-thru window in a black Porsche Macan and stabbing a 28-year-old man “with a large knife.”

Ravizza then allegedly parked his car, went inside, and stabbed a 21-year-old woman before driving off. Both victims were taken to local hospitals.

A witness shared Ravizza’s license plate information with Massachusetts State Police troopers, who discovered a Be on the Lookout (BOLO) alert for his arrest. The Porsche SUV was reportedly registered to Ravizza.

Massachusetts State Police troopers spotted Ravizza’s car in Sandwich. They attempted a traffic stop, but he did not comply. He later crashed his car and was taken to a hospital.

Ravizza is charged with armed assault to murder, two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and one count of indecent exposure. The district attorney’s office said Ravizza will undergo a competency evaluation at a state hospital.

Earlier that day, at 3:36 p.m., Connecticut State Police were called to a home on Merriwold Lane in Deep River and learned that a suspect threw a shovel through the house’s front door window and left. Witnesses told troopers that they recognized the suspect as a man who had been staying on a nearby street. Connecticut State Police also learned there had been an “audible disturbance” at the suspect’s residence.

The trooper went to the suspect’s address and found 70-year-old Brad Feldman outside with “visible injuries.” He was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Connecticut State Police, Ravizza’s personal belongings were at the same house where Feldman was found dead. Witnesses reportedly provided a description that matches Ravizza’s.

The investigation in Connecticut is ongoing and charges are pending.
