Police are attempting to locate a man who allegedly stabbed two customers at a Concord gas station last week. John David Gleason, Jr., 21, has been identified as a suspect in the attempted homicide at the Bonfare Market at 2800 Grant St., reported around 8:45 p.m. last Wednesday, according to police. Two men were fueling their car with gas at the business when a group of men approached and asked if they were gang members, police said.
Police said one of the suspects, later identified as Gleason, suddenly pulled a knife and started stabbing both men without provocation. The suspects fled the scene before officers arrived and the two victims were taken to John Muir Medical Center with wounds that did not appear to be life-threatening. There is an active warrant for Gleason’s arrest. Police said he has ties to Concord, Bay Point, Pittsburg, Antioch and possibly western Alameda County. He remains at large and is considered armed and dangerous.
