A 19 year old surfer was attacked by what appeared to be a shark late Wednesday morning, in the shallow surf off Crescent Beach.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s report states Shane Lancaster of Keystone Heights was in knee-deep water when he suddenly grabbed at his ankle and called for help. He suffered a series of horizontal gouges below his knee.

Marine Rescuers treated Lancaster on the scene for minor puncture wounds and said his injuries were consistent with a shark bite. Lancaster declined transportation to Flagler Hospital.
