Manuel Ramirez, 21, of Freehold, was in a taxi with his partner after they left the show, and attacked a 23-year-old man after asking the cab driver to stop the vehicle, authorities said today, NJ.com reports.
Ramirez and the victim had an altercation at a concert at the Lake Terrace hall on Oak Street that resulted in their ejection from the show, which featured multiple bands and DJs, said Sgt. Greg Staffordsmith, a Lakewood Police detective.
After they were ejected, Ramirez got into a taxi to go home, police said. The other man had started to walk away from the venue, they added. But as the taxi drove north on Paco Way, Ramirez saw the other man walking and asked the taxi driver to stop, police said.
Ramirez and 22-year-old Miriam Lopez of Brooklyn, N.Y., exited the cab and approached the man, police said. Ramirez confronted the victim and then stabbed him repeatedly in the chest, abdomen, face and back, Staffordsmith said.
The officers found and arrested Ramirez and Lopez, authorities said.
