WESTBROOK, Maine — State and Westbrook police are looking for a Massachusetts man who is a suspect in a fatal stabbing on Thursday night. The stabbing took place at about 10 p.m. inside an apartment at 73 Central St.
Tareek S. Hendricks, 30, of Worcester, Mass., is known by the street name “B K,” according to Stephen McCausland of the Maine Department of Public Safety. He is a 5 foot 8 inch black man with the word “LIFE” tattooed on his left fingers, according to a press release.
Dead is Robert Stubbs, who is believed to be 40 years old.
Stubbs’ wife also suffered stab wounds. Melissa Stubbs, 27, was treated and then released from Maine Medical Center on Friday, McCausland said.
Investigators say the stabbing apparently followed an argument the couple
had with a man, who fled on foot and may have been given a ride to Washington Avenue in Portland.
Investigators say the stabbing may be drug-related and agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency are assisting in the investigation.
The body of Stubbs has been taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta for autopsy.
Hendricks has a lengthy criminal record, according to the Maine Department of Public Safety.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call state police in Gray at 657-3030 or 911 on a cell phone.
