ARCHDALE, N.C. — A Greensboro man accused of stabbing a woman at a Taco Bell in Archdale knew her from church. That’s according to Archdale Police who said Tyvonne Quantaine Upshur wanted to date the woman but she turned him down.

Upshur was arrested Sunday night after stabbing the woman, Celestial Rose Lambert, 19, in the back several times. The stabbing happened around 10 p.m. at the South Main Street restaurant.

Other family members helped Lambert until emergency crews arrived. She was taken to High Point Medical Center by EMS and then airlifted to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

Upshur has been charged with two counts of Assault with a Deadly Weapon with Intent to Kill Inflicting Serious Injury and six counts of Assault with a Deadly Weapon. He is being held in the Randolph County Jail under a $500,000 secured bond. He appeared in court on Monday.
