Doylestown Man Arrested In Stabbing Of Homeless Veteran

By Tim Jimenez

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., (CBS) – A 21-year-old Doylestown man is in police custody in Baltimore. Authorities say he fled there after allegedly stabbing a homeless man dozens of times near the Doylestown train station early Wednesday morning.

Dale Wakefield had been out celebrating, according to Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler.

“Drinking and celebrating his 21st birthday, shortly before he encountered Mr. Mohr,” said Heckler.

Heckler is referring to 71-year-old George Mohr, a homeless veteran, who police found around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday on Clinton Street near the Doylestown train station.

“(Mohr) Received over 70 knife wounds and severe head trauma,” said Heckler.

Police believe Wakefield was drunk when he allegedly attacked Mohr, who is currently in grave condition. Heckler says Wakefield then fled to his sister’s place in Baltimore, but she then called police.

“Bucks County detectives and the Baltimore homicide detectives took Mr. Wakefield into custody,” said Heckler.

Wakefield is facing attempted murder, aggravated assault and weapons charges.
