Homeless Man Charged in Fatal Warren Stabbing

Richard Clark

A homeless man was charged Wednesday with fatally stabbing a Warren man last week.

Murder charges were filed against Richard Clark, 39, formerly of Niles.

He is accused of fatally stabbing Dwayne Hickman, 49, March 25 at Hickman’s Williamsburg Street N.W. home. Police said Clark stayed at Hickman’s home several times.

Clark, according to records, was charged with felony possession of drugs the following day and was taken to an area hospital. He was found at a Maryland Street N.W. home, police said.

Clark has been charged 12 times with drug offenses, twice with endangering children and receiving stolen property, three times with theft, and once each for attempted burglary, stealing a car, unauthorized use of a car, resisting arrest, trespassing and carrying a concealed weapon since 1993.

Police said they found Hickman’s body after family members became worried when they were unable to contact him for days.

Officers found Hickman dead inside his home with 11 stab wounds.

Hickman had several traffic violations, DUI, marijuana possession, carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and using weapons while intoxicated charges in Warren Municipal Court.

It’s the city’s third homicide of the year.
