Alleged stabbing: Officers responded to Bantz Park at 1:15 p.m. for a reported stabbing.

Witnesses told police that Horseman and the man were having a fist fight in the park when Horseman stabbed them, court documents state.

The victim told police he was at the park to fist fight his ex-girlfriend's current boyfriend, Horseman, and that during the fight Horseman used a small pocket knife and stabbed him, officials said. 

Police say Horseman then fled the scene in a white Ford SUV. The victim had three slash wounds to his upper torso when police spoke to him, charging documents indicate.

Horseman turned himself in a few hours later and he admitted to the stabbing but said it was in self-defense, police said.

Horseman was taken to the county's central booking unit, where he was arraigned on the charges. He remains in York County Prison in lieu of $50,000 bail.

He does not have an attorney listed.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 25 at District Judge Joel Toluba's office.
