Petersburg is a police officer that oversees the holding cells in the police station during the events of Max Payne 2.
He is first seen directing Max to Mona's cell. After the cleaners hit the police station in order to find and kill Mona Sax, Petersburg is fatally wounded. Briefly calling for help, he succumbs to his wounds before Max can reach him.
- If Max approaches Petersburg's corpse after he has been shot, he murmurs, "Petersburg!" in a shocked and depressed tone, suggesting that he and Petersburg were good friends.
