A Naples man was arrested for multiple robberies over a two week span and beating his victims with a baseball bat, the Collier County Sheriff's Office said.

The victim told deputies that he was sitting in his vehicle outside of a Food Mart when Williams and a woman later identified as Ashley Macias, approached him with a bat. When Williams asked him for money, the victim sped off, CCSO said.
