Charges against a man, who reportedly stabbed a woman last month at Taco Bell because she refused to date him, have been upgraded to attempted murder, according to Archdale Police.

On Sunday, March 31, at 9:59 p.m., Archdale officers responded to the eatery at 10102-X S. Main St. in reference to a stabbing.

When officers arrived, they observed several people detaining a man they said was the offender. The victim, Celestial Rose Lambert, 19, of Archdale, was lying nearby with multiple stab wounds to the back and was being rendered aid by family members. {snip}
