A York City man is charged with attempted homicide after police said he stabbed two people in Conewago Township on Friday night.

Northern York County Regional Police said Ronald Damien Weaver stabbed a man and a woman who were arguing Friday, Sept. 27.

Weaver, 28, of the 500 block of West King Street, also  is charged with four counts of aggravated assault, which are felonies, and two counts of simple assault, one count of making terroristic threats, possessing an instrument of crime, marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, which are misdemeanors.

As of Monday, Sept. 30, he remained in York County Prison on $150,000 bail.

Police said Tyler Kutsch, 21, of Dover Township, and Krysten Myers, 23, of Wellsville, were arguing about 10:30 p.m. Friday in the 3800 block of Bull Road.

They were at a gathering with friends, according to authorities.

The two were arguing, and Kutsch was trying to take Myers' phone from her hand when Weaver intervened and stabbed him, police said. 

Myers tried to break up the fight, and she was stabbed in the back of her right calf, court documents allege.

When police arrived at the scene, Kutsch was in and out of consciousness, police said. 

He had been stabbed in the left side of his neck and was "bleeding profusely," according to charging documents.

Weaver had drunk four to five beers as well as liquor throughout the night and had been talking about stabbing people, police said. 

Weaver fractured his right hand, which was also cut during the struggle, according to police.

Weaver was arraigned on the charges Saturday morning. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 11 at District Judge David Eshbach's office.
