Pair sought for attempted stabbing of Fry's worker

It was just a couple of weeks ago at a Fry's supermarket near Cave Creek Road and Hatcher that a couple of suspected thieves attempted to stab a store employee, according to police.

A loss prevention officer approached a  man and woman who were suspected of stealing liquor.  When the officer tried to get the booze back, the man pulled out a butterfly knife and tried to stab the officer in the neck. The two then took off on foot into a nearby neighborhood.

The woman in the accompanying photo has a tattoo on her upper left arm.  There is a reward up to $1,000 for information leading to their arrest.  

Another fugitive on police radar is Christopher Newman. He is 34 years old, 6-1, 190 pounds, and has multiple tattoos on his arms. Newman is wanted for violating probation on drug charges.

Police also need help locating 39-year-old Salvador Mendez Cardona. He's big guy, standing 6 feet tall and weighing  300 pounds.  He is wanted for auto theft, operating a chop shop and trafficking stolen property.
