A homeless man was charged with Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon on Feb. 14 after allegedly stabbing another man at Selby Library, the Sarasota Police Department has reported. The library is located at 1331 First St. in down- town Sarasota. Just after 11 a.m. on Feb. 14, Andrew Timshin, 27, and Marcus Colbert, 26, of 2805 Palmedelia Ave., Sarasota, were on the sec- ond floor of the library, near the computers, when they became involved in an altercation, a news release says. According to one wit- ness, the two men appeared to begin shoving each other near the copy machine, the report notes. Another witness told officers he heard Timshin shout, "I don't want him to put his hands on me!" During the course of the fight, Timshin stabbed Colbert, the release says.
