Bucks County Police said 30-year old, Dominique Harris, from Philadelphia, is facing charges after investigators say he stabbed a former co-worker over 50 times, ran him over, and dumped his body at a train station. According to a report from FOX-29 PHILADELPHIA, Harris was taken into custody on Thursday morning, when police on patrol spotted his car near Broad Street & Hunting Park Avenue.
Police say Harris has been charged with criminal homicide and possession of an instrument of crime for the brutal attack that left 54-year old Michael Pickens dead.
The Bucks County Prosecutor’s Office said that Harris is alleged to have ambushed Pickens on Wednesday morning as he was taking the trash out at a Wendy’s Restaurant in Bensalem, P.A. Harris allegedly chased Pickens as he ran toward the parking lot of Bensalem Beer & Soda, where he caught up to him, and stabbed him over 50 times. Harris then, fled the scene, according to the report. He then returned to the parking lot driving a 4-door Infinity. He ran Pickens over twice. Harris then allegedly wrapped a bely around Pickens’ neck before throwing him in the backseat of the car and drove away.
Police were called to the scene of the stabbing after being called by the store’s employees. They found no victim, but they did find blood. Police checked the surveillance cameras at the store, where they saw the entire incident. They followed the path the Infinity traveled using surveillance camera of businesses along the Infinity’s travel path. That led police to the Cornwells Train Station, where police discovered Pickens’ body.
Harris is currently being held at Bucks County Prison. He is being held with no bail. Police said Harris and Pickens worked together at the Wendy’s Restaurant that Pickens was currently working at when he was killed. Harris was fired for harassment back in January of this year. Pickens was the victim of the harassment claim that got Harris fired from Wendy’s, according to employee records.
