ST PETERSBURG — Authorities say a Florida man is accused of stabbing another man in the neck after learning he was Muslim during a discussion about religion.
According to an arrest affidavit, the man who was stabbed told 52-year-old Bradley Kent Strott that he was Muslim while the two talked on Saturday. Investigators say Strott then grabbed the man by his shirt and stabbed him with a pocket knife.
The man who was stabbed was treated for his wound, though details about his condition were not available.
Strott was charged with aggravated battery. He was released Saturday evening on $15,000 bond.
A message left at a telephone listing for Strott was not immediately returned.
