Man Stabs Co-Worker Over ... Meatballs Assailant fled the scene, charges are pending By Shelley Hazen, Newser User Posted Sep 8, 2014 2:45 PM CDT 41 comments Comments (Shutterstock) (Newser) – Don't touch a man's meatballs—that's the lesson a Maryland man learned last week when he pilfered his co-worker's lunch, the Baltimore Sun reports. It all started when a male employee of an unnamed business in Fallston took a single meatball from another man's lunch. Apparently uninterested in sharing, the assailant—identified only as a 31-year-old from Edgewood—allegedly stabbed the meatball thief in the arm. The 36-year-old victim was treated and released at a local hospital. His attacker fled the scene and charges are pending.
