Fight on Central Avenue in St. Pete sends man to hospital with stab wounds

ST. PETERSBURG — A fight in St. Petersburg ended Wednesday afternoon with one man stabbed multiple times and another man charged with attempted murder, according to police.

David Kaiser and Claude Jackson got into a fight just before 2 p.m. in the 2900 block of Central Avenue, according to an arrest report. Witnesses to the brawl intervened and separated Kaiser and Jackson.

After the two had stopped fighting, Kaiser, 49, grabbed a knife and attacked Jackson again, stabbing him 15 to 20 times in his upper chest, police said. Officers arrived a short time later and arrested Kaiser.

Jackson was taken to Bayfront Medical Center to be treated for serious injuries, police said. His condition was not available Thursday.

Kaiser was booked in the Pinellas County Jail on a charge of attempted first degree murder. He was being held without bail.
