Police: Dispute over dog leads to fork attack

December 24, 2012 5:24:14 AM PST
Grilling season is months away, but police in southern New Jersey say that didn't stop a man from attacking a woman with a barbecue fork.

Eugene Robinson was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and a weapons offense.

Police say they found the 37-year-old Mays Landing man at the scene of a fight Sunday morning. The fight reportedly stemmed from an argument over a dog bite, though it wasn't clear who owned the dog or who was bitten.

Police tell The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/V4iBWx) that Robinson stabbed the 25-year-old woman in the back. She and a 33-year-old man who was injured by broken glass were taken to the hospital.

Robinson was being held on $10,000 bail. It wasn't known if he had retained an attorney.
