VANCOUVER, Wash. - A teenage worker at a Vancouver McDonald's died after she was stabbed in the restaurant by a man Thursday night.

A short time after the stabbing, police say they apprehended a suspect and may have found the murder weapon.

Police were called to the fast food restaurant on the 2800 block on Northeast Andresen just after 8 p.m.

The stabbing victim, identified as Anna E. Svidersky, 17, was transported to Emanuel Hospital where she later died.

An autopsy is scheduled for this morning by the Clark County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police said Friday that the suspect apparently entered the restaurant around 8 p.m. while the victim was in the eating area.

Police said they were unsure if the victim was working at the time or an a break.

They did not disclose any details about the attack.

Police located the suspect, described as a white male, walking along Andresen Street a short distance from the McDonald's.

He was taken into custody without incident.

The suspect has been identified as David Barton Sullivan, 28. He is scheduled to be arraigned today at the Clark County Courthouse Jail on a first degree Murder.

Police say they also recovered the weapon used in the crime, described as a kitchen knife.

During a news conference Friday morning, Sullivan was described as a Level Two Registered Sex Offender with a criminal history including an assault charge in 2001.

Police say he also spent time in a Washington state facility for mental illness, but he was not currently on probation or parole.

The restaurant was closed after the incident and a police chaplain counseled employees who had remained on the scene.

An employee who says she worked the night shift at the restaurant says there was usually no trouble with customers after dark.

Vancouver Police say they do not believe the suspect and the victim knew each other or were associated in any way.
