Man threatens to kill local Wal-Mart employees

Brooksville, Florida -- A 52-year-old man was arrested Friday after he allegedly threatened to kill employees and managers at a Brooksville Wal-Mart.

Brooksville Police officers say on Friday morning, June 20, Rickey Stephenson reportedly rode into the Wal-Mart store in the 7300 block of Broad Street on a scooter and started verbally abusing two female employees who were looking at him. He then approached them in an aggressive manner and shouted obscenities and threatened to kill them as they called for help.

As he was being escorted out of the store by two managers, he said he would return with a gun and kill them.

Stephenson was finally arrested while trying to elude officers at a nearby Walgreens. He has been charged with four counts of assault. He is being held on $2,000 bond.
