A Christmas Day family dispute landed a Spring Garden Township man in York County Prison after he allegedly jabbed his sister with a "meat fork.”

Joshua Frederick Webber, 25, of the 600 block of Wheatlyn Drive in the township, was arrested about 3:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 25, after a Pennsylvania State Police trooper responded to a call at Webber’s mother’s Red Lion home, according to charging documents.

Webber is facing one misdemeanor charge of simple assault and one summary charge of harassment, court documents state.

While arguing with his sister, Webber pushed her to the ground and kicked her, forcing her to run upstairs, documents state. 

After his sister returned downstairs and warned him she would call the police, Webber started yelling, picked up a meat fork and chased her back upstairs, documents state. 

Webber then stabbed his sister with the meat fork, causing two small puncture wounds on the left side of her buttocks, according to the trooper who responded. 

Webber remained in York County Prison on Tuesday, Dec. 26, unable to post his $25,000 bail.
