Video leads to arrest of suspect in trolley stabbing

CLEVELAND - High-quality video of a stabbing on a downtown trolley helped police arrest a suspect.

Darrell Livingston, 45, was arrested Wednesday at his Akron home after the video (video still, right) was aired repeatedly by local news stations, police Lt. Thomas Stacho said on Thursday.

"We received myriad phone calls and tips," Stacho said. "A number didn't pan out, some did."

Stacho credits the tips with leading to the arrest of Livingston, who has served prison time in Florida for aggravated assault and drug charges.

The victim, Raymond Mills, 40, was treated at a local hospital for stab wounds to his neck and then released.

Police believe Livingston stabbed Mills Monday morning after the two argued over a seat on the trolley.

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority has installed the high-quality cameras on its new trolleys and plans to put them on all new buses.
