November 18, 2014
During his Monday evening visit to Ralph’s grocery store in San Luis Obispo, 45-year-old Daniel Marcom pulled a box cutter from his pocket and brandished it an employee, according to San Luis Obispo police.
Marcom, a San Luis Obispo resident, took out the box cutter around 7:13 p.m. after being asked to leave the store. On a previous occasion, he allegedly stole alcohol from the Ralph’s and was warned not to trespass at the location.
Several employees succeeded in separating Marcom from the box cutter and detained him until police arrived. Officers then arrested him for brandishing a box cutter and trespassing.
Marcom is currently in San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of exhibiting a deadly weapon other than a firearm and trespassing. His bail is set at $2,000.
