A North Carolina cop's photo with a man who tried to stab him last year has gone viral.

Officer JD Boyd from Raleigh posted a photo on Facebook after running into a man who nearly killed him last year. The two men are pictured standing with their arms around each other, smiling. 

"Almost a year ago this man and I were involved in a major altercation where he tried to stab me in the head and I nearly shot him," Boyd wrote in the post. "Today we ran into each other again."

Boyd learned that the former suspect left prison and now has a full-time job, plus another child on the way. 

"I was glad it ended well for us both that day and I am ecstatic now to learn that he has turned his life around and we can embrace as friends," he wrote.

The post has received over 212,000 likes and has been shared over 75,000 times on Facebook.
