Naples, FL (August 6, 2019) – Police responded to the scene of a domestic dispute in Naples, where they found that a woman had been battered by a man who then threatened police.
The incident took place at 26th Avenue SE in Naples on Tuesday night. The woman had been running from a man who was chasing her after he beat her inside their home, according to responding authorities.
The man who was arrested was quickly identified as Robert James Purdy, who kicked the woman repeatedly inside the home. She was able to get free from him and grabbed her phone, where she then ‘ran for her life.’ However, the woman’s son was still inside the home.
When deputies knocked on the door, Purdy answered and told them to leave. He then took out a gun and pointed it at deputies. He then told deputies that he was going to shoot himself.
A SWAT team was called to the scene and got Purdy out safely. The son was also fine.
Purdy has since been charged with aggravated assault, battery, and child neglect.
