An Overland Park 7-Eleven clerk was working in the aisle early Wednesday morning when a man “came out of nowhere” to stab him twice in the back, said police spokesman John Lacy.
Police were called to 107th Street and Metcalf Avenue just before 6 a.m. and found the victim, 46.
“He did not see it coming,” Lacy said.
The man was taken to an area hospital and is in stable condition.

Shortly after, police arrested Cole Michael Glaeser, 21, of Overland Park, nearby at 107th and Marty streets. He is being held on suspicion of aggravated battery.
Lacy said that the incident was not an attempted robbery and that a motive remains unclear.
