Police arrested the two men wanted for robbing and kidnapping a man from his Nashville home late last month.

According to police, Keiton Cox and his accomplice, 21-year-old Antonio Williams, are accused of walking onto a back patio of a home in the 1800 block of 16th Avenue North on Oct. 23.

The pair demanded belongings from a man at gunpoint before a friend who was also at the home at the time tried to intervene.

The woman was hit in the head during the incident. Williams and Cox then forced the victim into a pickup truck and drove the man to an ATM on Jefferson Street where an undisclosed amount of cash was allegedly withdrawn.

Cox was arrested Tuesday and is being held on $460,000 bond.

Williams was taken into custody Wednesday by SWAT officers at his home on Snell Boulevard. He is being held in lieu of $330,000 bond.

Williams is charged with aggravated robbery, kidnapping, assault, identity theft and felony possession of a weapon.

He was convicted of robbery earlier this year and sentenced to four years. Williams also has a previous conviction for aggravated burglary.
