One man in hospital after stabbing in Tarpon Springs

One man was in the hospital Thursday night after he was stabbed in the stomach outside a Tarpon Springs convenience store, police said.

About 8 p.m., the 48-year-old victim and two males, believed to be juveniles, were at 311 S. Pinellas Ave. outside the Long Ashes convenience store, Tarpon Springs police said.

Witnesses told police the people began fighting and one of the males stabbed the man, whose name was not released.

The victim ran away and the second male threw a brick at him, police said.

When police found the man, he was about 100 yards away, bleeding from his wound.

An emergency helicopter flew the man to Bayfront Health St. Petersburg, where he was in critical condition.

Police have not found the suspects, but detectives are following leads.

Anyone that has information about this incident can call Detective Derek Anderson of the Tarpon Springs Police Department at (727) 938-2849.
