Feud between two women leads to stabbing of a third

LEALMAN — Nicole Cherie Caudill was looking for a fight on Sunday, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, but ended up stabbing the wrong woman.

Caudill, 21, twice drove to 2505 49th Ave. N to confront a 17-year-old girl inside over their shared interest in a male acquaintance, deputies said.

On her second trip there around 5:20 p.m., deputies said Caudill and a friend challenged the 17-year-old to come outside and fight. The friend threw a shoe at the home and the crowd gathered outside, deputies said, hitting a 16-year-old girl.

Then Caudill got into an altercation with the 16-year-old. Deputies said Caudill pulled out a small, curved knife and slashed the 16-year-old.

Some witnesses said the 16-year-old was armed with a broomstick and others said she was not. There were multiple witnesses to the incident but they gave deputies varying accounts.

The victim was taken to All Children's Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Caudill was arrested on a charge of attempted murder and is being held in the Pinellas County jail in lieu of $200,000 bail.
