March 10, 2010|By Don Markus | Baltimore Sun reporter

Howard County police have issued an arrest warrant for a 41-year-old Baltimore man who they believe attacked a shopping mall security guard with a box cutter last month after being suspected of shoplifting.

According to police, Terrell Andre Webb of the 1500 block of N. Decker Ave. was stopped about 4:20 p.m. on Feb. 27 by Kevin Seaton and another security guard, after Webb tried to leave a Macy's store wearing several items of clothing that the guards believed he had put on in the dressing area. Webb refused to stop, then swung around and hit Seaton in the upper torso and face with the box cutter before fleeing, police said.

Employees who followed Webb to the parking lot were able to note the license plate on his car. Seaton was taken to Howard County General Hospital with a non-life-threatening wound.

Webb faces charges of first- and second-degree assault, carrying a concealed deadly weapon and theft. Anyone with information about Webb's whereabouts is asked to contact police at 410-313-STOP. Callers can remain anonymous.
