A York City man allegedly stabbed a man outside a bar early Friday morning, according to charging documents.

Roger Thomas Webber, 26, of 239 W. Market St., is charged with aggravated assault and attempted simple assault, according to police.

Around 1 a.m. Friday morning, York City Police were dispatched to the back of 243 W. Market St. to investigate a report of a man with a weapon, police said.

Webber was found near the rear parking lot of 239 W. Market St. and detained, police said.

Police say they found the victim, Tyson Turner, 31, with a puncture wound to the center of his back, directly below his neck.

Turner told police Webber and a woman were arguing outside Waterway Bar and Grill; when Turner attempted to intervene and separate the two, he was stabbed in the back, police said.

He told police he did not see who stabbed him, but another witness said they saw Webber stab Turner with a plastic-handled, kitchen-style steak knife and leave the area, according to police.

Police say the witness told them Webber had been removed from the bar before the incident.

Webber remains in York County Prison after being unable to post $30,000 bail.
