PHOENIX — A man was arrested after he allegedly stabbed a Mesa grocery store worker he felt disrespected him last month, authorities said.

Henry Mcleod, 37, was arrested and booked into Fourth Avenue Jail on multiple charges of aggravated assault, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release Wednesday.

Deputies responded to a report of a stabbing at the Fry’s grocery store near Broadway and Ellsworth roads around 4 a.m. on Nov. 23.

When they arrived, they found a man with stab wounds. He was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, MCSO said.

Store surveillance video and an interview with the suspect lead authorities to Mcleod, whom MCSO said was a contract employee at the store.

He fled the scene prior to the deputies’ arrival but was later taken into custody.

No other details were made available.

CORRECTION: Earlier versions of this report erroneously implied the suspect was a Fry’s employee. We regret the error.

We want to hear from you.
