MENLO PARK — A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and robbery after allegedly stabbing a convenience store clerk, authorities said Sunday.

Just after 3 p.m., dispatchers received a call about the assault from 7-Eleven, 525 Oak Grove Ave., police said in a statement.

When officers arrived, they found an employee who suffered stab wounds on his hand and neck during a store robbery. The employee was taken to an area hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Officers searched the area and credited a tip from a passer-by with helping to identify and detain Matthew Bertolucci, a Menlo Park resident. When officers searched him, they found property taken from the store and a knife on him, police said.

Bertolucci was booked into San Mateo County jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and armed robbery. Details on any possible bail or a hearing date were not immediately available Sunday evening.
