PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A 27-year-old man has been re-arrested for stabbing a stranger at a Phoenix Walgreens store one year ago.

Christopher Gale was originally found incompetent to stand trial, but was sent to a mental health facility and is now considered "restored."

Gale was arrested on suspicion of sneaking up from behind and stabbing the woman in the back of the neck inside the store at 3402 N. Central Ave. on Sept. 20 at about 6:30 p.m.

The 58-year-old victim said Gale told her, "I'm killing you to save the world," according to the police report.

Police said Gale bought the weapon, an eight-inch chef's knife for 98 cents, about 1 1/2 hours earlier at a Walmart store for the purpose of "stabbing and killing someone."

After stabbing the victim, Gale went through the store with the knife raised over his head looking for another victim, the court document stated.

An armed off-duty federal agent who happened to be in the store at the time stopped the suspect.

The victim suffered deep cuts but was not critically injured.

During a police interview, Gale said he knew stabbing the victim was wrong but felt no remorse and would not apologize.

Gale provided officers with the receipt for the purchase of the knife, court paperwork stated.

Authorities said Gale is a drug user and his drug of choice is methamphetamine.

He has failed to appear on a minor charge of shoplifting.

"Gale has indicated his future includes torturing other humans and he has no regard for human life," according to the court document.
