Police say Devante L. Johnson, 18, met with the victim at the cemetery around 11 p.m. on June 24th when the stabbing occurred.

WTXL-TV reports that while the two men were in the act, “the suspect referred to a former boyfriend of (the victim’s) by name and said no one would have to worry about (the victim) anymore,” according to court documents

The suspect, later identified as Johnson, started stabbing him repeatedly.

The victim was able to kick Johnson out of the car and lock the door. The victim then drove out of the cemetery crashing his car through the cemetery’s fence.

The victim, whose name has not been released, sustained five stab wounds, three to chest and one in each arm.

He suffered a punctured lung and lacerated liver, and underwent surgery at a nearby hospital.

Johnson was charged with attempted murder last week.
