FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. -- Police arrested a man for robbing two boys at gunpoint, and a second arrest is expected soon.

Police say Corey Eaton used a Tech 9 semi-automatic handgun to rob two juveniles walking down Atlantic Ave. last month. The boys were robbed of their cell phones and money.

The boys managed to get a partial license plate number and a good description of the gunman who had a pink bandana over his face.

Investigators ultimately narrowed in on Eaton, who matched the description of a person recently suspected of stealing a Tec-9 handgun.

He admitted to stealing the items from the youngsters. Eaton also admitted that his friend, Wilbert Morris, Jr. was in the car at the time of the robbery. A warrant is being drawn up for Morris.

Eaton is being held in the Nassau County jail on $225,000 bond. He is charged with attempted kidnapping, armed robbery, grand theft, and grand theft of a firearm.

No secrecy in this town. I guess Morris is sitting at home waiting for the police to get a warrant for his arrest.
