A teenager is in the hospital and the 41-year-old man who attacked her with a car before stabbing her is behind bars at a North Carolina jail, the Archdale Police Department reported on Facebook.

The 19-year-old was stabbed multiple times because she refused to date Tyvonne Quantaine Upshur, WXII reported. Upshur knew the teen from church, according to WFMY.

Jilted, the “obsessed” Greensboro man followed the teen and her family from church to a Taco Bell and tried to run them over but missed and crashed into utility poles, WGHP reported. Upshur then got out of the car and stabbed the teenager in the back, according to the TV station.

Police said when officers arrived at the Taco Bell around 10 p.m., several people were restraining Upshur while the 19-year-old was lying on the ground and her multiple stab wounds were being treated by family members, according to the Facebook post.
