The Deseret News reports Joel Estrada of Salt Lake City was charged with the first-degree felony count Friday in 3rd District Court.
He's accused of stabbing a man about 10 times while he was waiting for his breakfast order Wednesday at a downtown Burger King.
The 25-year-old victim was critically injured and underwent surgery after being rushed to a hospital.
According to police, the victim was stabbed in the neck while Estrada stood behind him in a booth. The victim tried to take cover under the booth, but the suspect continued to stab him until fleeing the scene.
