Man Charged With Robbery

A 44-year-old man was arrested Sunday on charges that he robbed another man who was walking to work in East Naples.

Martin Suarez, 4825 Palmetto Court, East Naples, was charged with robbery.

Arrest reports say Rodrigo Godines, 26, told deputies that he was walking to work near the corner of Airport-Pulling Road and Davis Boulevard around 6 a.m. on Oct. 10 when Suarez approached him and asked for money.

Godines refused and Suarez pushed him to the ground, reports said. Suarez removed Godines’ cell phone, charger and wallet from his pants pockets, reports said.

Suarez also stole a pair of shoes Godines was carrying, reports said.

Godines spotted Suarez in the area of Airport-Pulling and Glades Boulevard on Sunday and alerted deputies, who arrested Suarez.
