Authorities in Ocean County are seeking the public’s help locating a man charged with attempted murder in connection to a stabbing in the parking lot of a local ShopRite.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Michael Stallworth, 37, who is accused of stabbing a 44-year-old man in the back multiple times in the parking lot of ShopRite on Route 70 in Brick around 4 p.m. Monday, Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D.
