Police: Man turns table on brother in hammer attack

Posted: Updated:

A St. Petersburg man is in serious condition after being stabbed by his brother.

According to police, it happened around 2 a.m. at 1201 9th Avenue South. Police say Carlos Webb, 58, was defending himself when he stabbed his 57-year-old brother, Emanuel.

Investigators say Emanuel attacked Carlos with a hammer, so Carlos stabbed him in the chest with a knife.

Emanuel remains in the hospital in serious but stable condition. It's unclear what the brothers were fighting about. Alcohol appears to be a factor.

Police said Carlos did suffer some injuries consistent with a hammer attack.

Charges are pending in the investigation.
