Johnson got out of the vehicle with a knife in his hand and began arguing with the victim over a woman, police said.

As the victim tried walking away, Johnson allegedly said, "I'll stab you right now."

"Over a girl?" the victim asked, before Johnson stabbed him in the right bicep, according to police.

Charges were filed Monday, Oct. 30, and as of Wednesday, Nov. 8, he had not been arraigned on them.
