Redwood City police are seeking one of two suspects involved in an assault and stabbing near the 7-Eleven store on June 30.

The incident occurred about 2 a.m. at the store at 460 Woodside Road, when two victims, men ages 23 and 24, went to make a purchase and were confronted inside the store by two men yelling gang slurs. The suspects lured the victims outside, attacked them and stabbed one of the victims, who required emergency medical surgery but is recovering, police said.

One of the suspects, 24-year-old Justin Guidici, was detained at the scene by responding police. The other suspect, 32-year-old Abran Gutierrez, fled and remains at large.

Guidici, who was booked into San Mateo County Jail for various charges including participation in a criminal street gang, was later released from custody on bail. However, he was re-arrested on Wednesday, July 5, after Redwood City police detectives executed search warrants on his and Gutierrez’s homes, which are in Redwood City.

“A search of [Guidici’s home] revealed illegal fireworks and illegal narcotics,” police said.

Anyone with information regarding Gutierrez’ whereabouts is encouraged to contact Det. Sgt. Perna at (650) 780-7672 or the Redwood City Police Department’s Tip Line at 650-780-7110.
