A 51-year-old Carrabelle man was arrested Saturday for attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed two men earlier that morning on the Carrabelle docks.

David B. Keith, Sr. was arrested at his home, and taken to the jail about 10 a.m. Saturday morning. He had his first appearance on Sunday before Circuit Judge Frank Sheffield.

Keith was charged with aggravated battery - great bodily harm, and attempted first-degree murder, and later posted a surety bond of $40,000 for his release.

According to a report by Carrabelle Police Officer Gary Hunnings, the incident happened sometime before 2:08 a.m. Saturday on the Carrabelle docks near Fathom's Raw Bar, 201 St. James Avenue.

The raw bar had been closed since 11:30 p.m. Owner Eric Pfeufer said he was called about 3 a.m., and he returned to the area to see what had happened.

Hunnings said when he arrived at the scene, there was a man lying on the ground, with several people over him.

He said John Shane Evans, 40, of Crawfordville, “came up and was holding his stomach, saying that he and his friend had been stabbed. Evans had his left hand over his stomach, slightly on the left side.”
