A dispute between two employees of a Fallston business over a meatball during lunch Thursday led to a stabbing, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said.
Deputies were called around 11:10 a.m. to the business in the 2300 block of Belair Road, where they learned there had been an argument over one employee eating the other's meatball from his lunch, Sheriff's Office spokesperson Cristie Kahler said.
An fight ensued and the employee who had eaten the meatball was stabbed in the arm by the employee whose lunch he had taken the meatball from, Kahler said.
The victim, a 36-year-old Aberdeen man, was taken to a local hospital and later discharged.
The assailant, a 31-year-old Edgewood man, fled the scene.
An arrest warrant has been issued but the man had not been served as of Tuesday afternoon, Kahler said.
