A man who was out celebrating his 21st birthday is facing homicide charges after a homeless veteran was stabbed 70 times near a Doylestown, Pa. SEPTA train station, authorities said.

Victim George Mohr, 71, died over the weekend at Temple University after the Army veteran was found with dozens of stab wounds around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday outside the train station.

Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler said Friday that Doylestown resident Dale “Bugsy” Wakefield was charged with attempted murder and other counts after being arrested Thursday in Baltimore, Md. Those charges were expected to upgraded to homicide charges since Mohr died form his injuries.

A motorist driving by the train station on the 100 block of S. Clinton Street spotted Mohr and called for help.

Police say it originally appeared as if Mohr had been hit by a car, but once medics arrived on scene they realized he'd been stabbed.

Investigators say Wakefield called his sister and said he had stabbed someone and wanted to flee to North Dakota, but was currently in Baltimore. He was arrested several hours later.
