A man was arrested by Cape Coral police after getting into an altercation with his neighbor, battering the neighbor and then threatening him with a pickaxe.

On June 15th, 2020 at around 7:40 p.m., Cape Coral Police officers responded to a disturbance in progress between two neighbors. The investigation determined that Tylor McHugh (W/M, DOB: 3-19-98) had been the aggressor, biting the victim on the arm and striking him in the back with a broomstick. McHugh then grabbed a pickaxe and began following the victim in a threatening manner. McHugh also battered a second victim (by shoulder-checking), but that victim did not wish to press charges.

McHugh was arrested for battery (touch/strike) as well as aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. He was medically cleared for a laceration he suffered during the altercation, and was transported to the Lee County Jail.
