Food Related Assault Epidemic Reaches Philadelphia, Man Assaults Girlfriend With Meatball Sub

Boy, they sure do take their meatball subs seriously in Philadelphia. So much so, that men have been known to assault their fiancées over a poorly made sandwich.

According to a story in the Philadelphia Daily News, Lyndel Toppin attacked his fiancée, who police did not name, because he didn't like the way she made his sandwich.

Specifically, he didn't like how the cheese was placed.

Toppin "became enraged due to the victim not placing cheese on his hoagie roll correctly," said the arrest report.

The woman said Toppin grabbed a knife and slashed her finger, which caused a deep cut. She needed 23 stitches.

Toppin also bit the woman's wrist and would not let go.

Toppin has been charged with aggravated and simple assault, reckless endangerment, possessing an instrument of crime and harassment.

He is so not going to like prison food.
