Olanrewaju Oshiga, 32, was arrested on an unrelated matter Tuesday, but officers suspected he was the attacker in the stabbing after they took him into custody, police said.

Oshiga matched a photo taken during the incident at the McDonald’s and admitted to the stabbing during an interview with detectives, police said.

He was charged with a felony count of attempted murder and denied bail, police said. His next court date was scheduled for April 11.

The man who was stabbed remains in serious condition at St. Francis, police said.
