A used-car salesman was taken to a hospital for stitches after he was stabbed by a customer.
The customer was caught after he made one critical error when he stabbed the car salesman during test drive and stole the car.
Authorities in Florida, said that 27-year-old Joshua Maxwell came to the dealership armed and with a plan to carjack the employee.
However, before they went out for a test drive, Maxwell handed over his driver’s license to the employee at the CarMax dealership in Davie.
What Maxwell failed to realize is that before he received his driver’s license back, the employee made a copy of it.
At the end of the test drive at about 10:00 a.m., Maxwell pulled out a broken piece of copper pipe, and he stabbed the car salesman in the head and chest.
When the employee managed to free himself, Maxwell drove away. Authorities used the driver license to track down the suspect.
After his arrest, Maxwell allegedly told police that he planned to sell the used car.
Maxwell pleaded not guilty to a burglary charge at a hearing in federal court in Fort Lauderdale.
