A 54-year-old man is charged with stabbing a security guard without provocation at the Grocery Outlet in Redwood City on Saturday, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

At about 4 p.m., Anthony Lamar Webb entered the store at 1833 Broadway and purchased several items, according to prosecutors. While walking out of the store, Webb pulled out a knife and stabbed the security guard, prosecutors said. The security guard was transported to a hospital in critical condition but has improved and is expected to recover.

Webb remained at the store when police arrived and was identified by a witness to the attack, which was also captured by a store surveillance camera, according to prosecutors.

Another witness, a store employee, reported prior to the attack he heard Webb complain about the security guard looking at him and said, “I’m going to get him.”

Webb has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted murder, felony assault with a deadly weapon and infliction of great bodily injury. He remains in custody on a $10 million bail.
