IT'S SCARY ENOUGH TO BE ROBBED.

BUT IMAGINE HOW YOU'D FEEL IF YOU WERE RELATED TO THE SUSPECT!

Glynn Huntington, CVS customer

09:16:02-:08

If that's true, that's really really shocking to hear that, and surprising what can happen within families.

THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT NAPLES POLICE SAY HAPPENED BETWEEN TWO BROTHERS AT THIS DOWNTOWN CVS.

YOU SEE A MAN IN ALL BLACK WEARING A MASK.

INVESTIGATORS SAY IT'S 23 YEAR OLD AKEEM ARNOLD.

THE CVS MANAGER IS HIS OLDER BROTHER DAVID ARNOLD.

PLUS THE "WEAPON" USED TO SCARE HIS BROTHER -- ONLY IT WASN'T A GUN.

GLYNN HUNTINGTON, CVS CUSTOMER

09:16:16-:19

A hose nozzle?

Yeah.

Ok, that's a new one.

NAPLES POLICE LIEUTENANT JOHN BARKLEY CREDITS DAVID ARNOLD'S QUICK THINKING FOR GETTING THEIR SUSPECT CAUGHT SO QUICKLY.

Lt. John Barkley, NPD

09:04:41-:46

He was very smartly saying that out loud so people inside the store knew what was going on and they were the ones that call 911.

OFFICERS SAY AKEEM ARNOLD DIDN'T GIVE UP WITHOUT A FIGHT.

BARKLEY

09:05:15

Oh no he didn't.

REPORTS SHOW IT TOOK TWO PEPPER SPRAYS AND HANDCUFFS TO GET HIM UNDER CONTROL.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


SOME STORMS THIS EVENING

Scattered downpours and thunderstorms are expected to continue this evening along Southwest Florida's I-75 corridor.

Any storms that move across the region this evening will come with times of heavy rainfall, gusty wind and lightning.

The activity is expected to pushward northwestward over the Gulf of Mexico and begin tapering off in intensity during the evening, with conditions calming down further throughout the overnight time frame. Low temperatures tonight are anticipated to cool to around 72 degrees.

The weather scenario looks rather similar for Friday. Once again scattered showers, downpours and thunderstorms are expected with the influence of the sea breeze. Temperatures are expected to max out from the upper 80s in coastal communities to low 90s for areas further inland.

Scattered PM storms stay in the forecast for the upcoming weekend. Both Saturday and Sunday will bear the chance for some isolated showers or storms with highs topping out in the 90s.

Looking more long range at the forecast, the upcoming work week looks to feature daily high temperatures in the low 90s, with the chance of some showers or storms developing each day, mainly in the late afternoon time periods.

THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA. Return to index of stories...
