Chicago police Wednesday night apprehended a fugitive wanted for terrorizing a family at their south Nashville apartment earlier this week.

Corey Taylor, 26, was spotted by a Chicago officer inside the victim's car and arrested without incident.

The 71-year-old victim told police he met Taylor at a bus station downtown a few weeks ago and had allowed him to sleep on his couch for a few days prior to a fight breaking out Monday.

During the fight, Taylor allegedly pulled a knife, threatened to kill the victim and his family and prevented them from leaving the apartment.

Taylor ultimately took several watches, a cell phone, cash and the victim's car keys before fleeing.

During their investigation, police learned Taylor had tied to Chicago and alerted police there.

Taylor will be returned to Nashville where he faces five counts of aggravated kidnapping and one count of aggravated robbery.
