The second of two suspects involved in a stabbing outside the 7-Eleven store in Redwood City on June 30 is now in custody, according to the Redwood City Police Department.

Abran Gutierrez, 32, from Redwood City, was tracked to Oregon, where he was arrested by the U.S. Marshal’s Service and subsequently extradited to San Mateo County. He was booked into San Mateo County Jail on Wednesday.

The incident occurred about 2:55 a.m. on June 30 when two men ages 23 and 24 went to the 7-Eleven at 460 Woodside Road to make a purchase, police said. Inside the story they were confronted by two suspects, Gutierrez and Justin Guidici, 24, of Redwood City, who allegedly made threatening comments toward them, yelling gang slurs, police said.

“The suspects lured the victims outside, where they subsequently attacked them,” police said. “One victim was stabbed during the assault.”

The victim received a significant injury requiring emergency surgery, police said.

Guidici was detained at the scene when police arrived and later booked into San Mateo County Jail for felony assault with a deadly weapon and for participation in a criminal street gang. Gutierrez fled the scene — and the state, police said.

In September, he was tracked to Oregon. He is currently in custody awaiting court proceedings.
