Two men were taken into custody Monday night in connection with the attempted murder of popular Sanford, Florida, restaurant manager, Larry Picardat, who was stabbed in the back during an attempted robbery at his place of work over the weekend.

Guy Hughes and Alfredo Rivas (pictured below,) were arrested on charges of attempted homicide and robbery with a weapon in an early Sunday morning incident at Wolfy’s Lakeside Bar and Grill.


Sanford police said officers were called to Wolfy’s Bar and Grill on North Palmetto Avenue at 7:19 a.m. Sunday after the manager, Larry Picardat, was stabbed.

Picardat told police that he was sitting at his desk next to the safe while preparing for the restaurant to open when someone put a gun to his head and said, “Give me all your money.”

Picardat said he thought someone was pulling a prank on him, so he replied, “I don’t have any money.” source

The man repeated himself and Picardat realized it was not a joke, a police report said.

Police said Picardat tried to wrestle the gun away from one man, but another man behind him stabbed him with a knife.
