Two men were arrested Tuesday night in Nashville in connection to two hold-ups during which four people were robbed.

The arrest came after Metro officers were flagged down around 10 p.m. by a Chinese delivery driver on Wedgewood Avenue near 12th Avenue South.

The man told police two men approached him on Hillside Avenue while he was making a delivery. One was armed with a handgun and the other with a baseball bat.

The victim was struck by the bat before the suspects took his cash, cell phone and delivery food.

Minutes earlier, police said they responded to a second hold up at Santa’s Pub on Bransford Avenue. Three victims were sitting outside when the suspects robbed them of their cash and cell phone before fleeing in a silver hatchback car.

Their vehicle was later spotted on Union Street in downtown Nashville.

The driver, identified as 21-year-old Turner Goodwin, bailed from the car but was quickly arrested.

His passenger, 32-year-old Roland Davis, was also taken into custody.

All of the items reportedly stolen earlier in the night were found inside the car, along with the handgun and baseball bat.

Goodwin is charged with three counts of facilitation of aggravated robbery and one count of aggravated robbery.

Davis is charged with four counts of aggravated robbery.

Both men are being held in lieu of $225,000 bond.
