Christmas is always the perfect occasion for a family reunion. One get together between siblings in Red Lion, Penn. on Christmas turned from happy to horrific when an argument became violent which ended in a “fork-stabbing” incident.
The altercation between a brother and a sister has already ended when the police arrived at the residence to respond to a call for assistance. The responding officers saw the sister with two little puncture marks on the left side of her buttocks. The meat fork used by her brother to inflict the wound was still on the table when the authorities started investigating the incident.
The victim told the police that her brother stabbed her using the meat fork during an argument. The brother has left the scene by the time the police arrived.
The 911 caller happened to be the warring siblings’ mother who was not named by the authorities. She said that her son had hit her daughter with a meat fork.
Charge documents state that Jazmen Nicole Webber informed the police that she was just arguing with her brother when he pushed her to the ground and kicked her. The sister then tried to escape her brother’s wrath by running upstairs but went back downstairs after a while to confront her brother anew. She told him she could call the police to report what he did to her. Her brother reacted even angrier and started yelling at her before picking up the meat fork, chasing the sister upstairs and striking the left side of her buttocks with the meat fork.
The documents did not specify what the siblings were arguing about.
The suspect is identified as Joshua Frederick Webber, 25 years old. He was arrested later on Christmas day by the Pennsylvania State Police. Webber will be charged with simple assault and harassment.
The brother is in New York County Prison on $25,00 bail. He has a preliminary hearing on January 8.
It is not clear if the sister has sought medical attention for the wounds she sustained from her brother’s attacks, from being pushed and kicked to the fork stabbing incident.
