Carjacking victim fatally stabs attacker in neck Jannise Johnson, Staff Writer Article Launched: 10/20/2007 11:10:05 PM PDT FONTANA - On the last day of his life, carjacking suspect Demetrius Joy reportedly ordered his victim out the car and declared that he would kill him. But it was Joy who ended up dead on Saturday morning. San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies reported that the victim, unwilling to die, punched Joy in the face. When that wasn't enough, he stabbed Joy in the neck with a pocket knife, severely wounding him. Deputies responded about 4:30 a.m. to a motel in the 15200 block of Foothill Boulevard. They found Joy's body, along with a folding knife and plastic gun that deputies believe were used in the carjacking attempt, lying in the parking lot, according to a county Coroner's Department news release. Investigators said they learned that before the stabbing, Joy pointed a gun at the victim as he sat in his vehicle in a gas station parking lot, according to a sheriff's news release. Joy got in the vehicle and ordered the victim to drive away. A few minutes later, Joy made the victim pull over so he could get in the driver's seat and the victim could sit on the passenger side, authorities said. The victim was able to dial 9-1-1 from his cell phone without Joy seeing him. Emergency dispatch was able to record about 20 to 30 minutes of the conversation between Joy and the victim, according to the news release. During the ride, the victim offered to take Joy to an ATM so he could withdraw money for him. Joy stopped at the motel and ordered the victim from the vehicle. At one point, Joy told the victim that he was "done" and was going to kill him, according to the news release. The victim punched Joy in the face after exiting the vehicle in the driveway to the motel's parking lot. The strikes seemed to have no effect, authorities said. The victim then stabbed Joy in the face and neck, authorities said. Joy was declared dead at the scene, according to the coroner's news release. County firefighters responded to the motel along with a private ambulance company, said Tom Barnes, dispatch fire supervisor. The victim was interviewed by detectives and released, authorities said. The case will be forwarded to the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office for review. --- Hope he walks but its california he'll probably do time for violating the carjackers rights.
