Pair arrested after T.J. Maxx stabbing

Two suspects were arrested last week after allegedly defrauding a T.J. Maxx store in Daly City, stabbing a security guard who tried to stop them and fleeing, police said Tuesday.

Shakia Vanderbilt, 21, and Marcells Eubanks, 20, were arrested in connection with an incident that occurred shortly before noon last Thursday at the store in the Westlake Shopping Center off of John Daly Boulevard, according to police.

The security guard tried to stop the pair and was stabbed in the hand, police said. The suspects fled in a silver Buick sedan and were eventually tracked down in San Francisco. Vanderbilt was taken into custody but Eubanks fled.

He was located a short time later in Oakland and officers found a handgun inside of the car he was driving, according to police. Both Vanderbilt and Eubanks were booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, burglary and illegal possession of a firearm, police said.
