A Bradenton Beach man arrested for the Dec. 8 stabbing of a man in the 2500 block of Avenue B in the city faces a $35,000 bond.
Jacob Stephen Gennell, 20, was arrested for alleged aggravated battery and escape.
Bradenton Beach police also arrested a second person, a 17-year-old male, in connection with the stabbing.
BBPD responded early Dec. 8 to Avenue B, where a man told officers he was lured outside a home, hit with a bat and stabbed five times. The man suffered broken ribs and a punctured lung.
That morning BBPD arrested Jacob Stephen Gennell, 20, of Bradenton Beach, for aggravated battery.
Gennell was arrested and taken to BBPD, where a police report stated that he escaped through a bathroom window. He was captured soon after with the assistance of a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office deputy.
In addition to setting bond, the court ordered Gennell to have no contact with the stabbing victim, described in police documents as an acquaintance.
