Deputies: Man Attacked Roommate With A Hammer

An East Naples man was arrested Thursday after deputies say he threatened his roommate with a butcher knife and then struck him with a hammer.

Timothy Gale Crenshaw, 38, 4220 Gulfstream Drive, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and battery.

Arrest reports say Aundray Spears, 42, told deputies that he and Crenshaw were arguing when Crenshaw picked up a 10-inch butcher knife and held it to Spears’ throat. Crenshaw put down the knife and Spears locked himself in a bedroom, reports said.

Crenshaw started hitting the bedroom door with a hammer. Spears came out of the bedroom and Crenshaw struck him on the shoulder with the hammer, reports said.
