NAPLES, Fla. - A Naples man was arrested New Year's Day after deputies say he tried to rob a convenience store with a tomahawk.

The incident happened around 2:21 Wednesday afternoon at the 7-Eleven at 31 9th Street North.

The clerk recognized the suspect, 23-year-old Kristopher Robyn Sebrasky when he walked into the store carrying a backpack.  The two had lived at St. Matthews House in April 2013.

The clerk told deputies when the store emptied of customers Sebrasky produced a tomahawk which had a folding knife attached.  He told the clerk to put money in his backpack.

Another customer walked into the store at which time Sebrasky handed the tomahawk to the clerk to make it appear that he was just showing him the weapon.  Then Sebrasky took the tomahawk and left the store without any money.

When detectives found Sebrasky at his mother's home he told them the robbery had been a joke.  He was arrested and charged with attempted robbery with a weapon.
