Concord resident John David Gleason Jr., 21 has been identified as the suspect in the stabbing of two men outside a Bonfare Market on Grant Street in Concord on Wednesday, July 10, 2013. Concord police issued an attempted murder arrest warrant for him on Tuesday, July 16.

CONCORD -- Police on Tuesday asked the public's help to find a man suspected of stabbing two people outside a Concord food market last week.

An arrest warrant for suspicion of attempted murder has been issued for 21-year-old Concord resident John David Gleason Jr., Concord police Lt. Steve Dyer said. Gleason is suspected of stabbing two people on July 10 outside the Bonfare Market at 2800 Grant St.

Police still have not found the weapon used in the stabbings, Dyer said, and Gleason Jr., should be considered armed and dangerous. Police say he has ties to the cities of Bay Point, Pittsburg and Antioch, and possibly western Alameda County.

Police said the two men were stabbed as they pumped gas outside the market, located at 2800 Grant Street, around 8:45 p.m. A group allegedly approached the men as they were filling up the vehicle and asked if they were gang members, and police said Gleason Jr. pulled out a knife for unknown reasons and stabbed both men more than once.

Police say that any sighting of Gleason Jr. should be followed by a call to local police. Tips on his whereabouts can be given to Detective James Nakayama at 925-671-3478 or left on an anonymous tip line at 925-603-5836.
