DOYLESTOWN, PA. — Authorities say a man who had been out celebrating his 21st birthday is facing charges after a homeless veteran was found stabbed dozens of times near a train station outside Philadelphia.

Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler said Dale “Bugsy” Wakefield of Doylestown was charged with attempted murder and other counts after being arrested Thursday in Baltimore.

Investigators said the victim, 71-year-old George Mohr, an Army veteran, remained in critical condition after being found with more than 70 stab wounds around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday outside the Doylestown train station.

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

Wakefield was in custody. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
