NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three people were arrested in downtown after a string of robberies early Friday morning.
It all started around 1 a.m. when two men and a woman allegedly approached at least eight victims at gunpoint. The trio, whose identities have not been released, demanded money before fleeing on foot.
Officer Ryan Henehan saw the two male suspects in the middle of a third robbery and was able to confront them.
After a brief foot chase, officers caught the two men in the Music City Center tunnel on Sixth Avenue. They have been identified as Clifford Hensley, 21, and Devin Fann, 18.
The woman, 18-year-old Summer Toombs, left the scene in a car but was arrested during a traffic stop a short time later.
“The whole flex team did a tremendous job of communicating and making those apprehensions,” Commander Jason Reinbold said.
Police said the trio matches the suspect descriptions of those who robbed a group of musicians in downtown Nashville Thursday morning.
“Over the last several months we haven’t seen many incidents of this type and particularly we haven’t had any personal robberies occur in this vicinity,” Reinbold said. “Whenever any incident like this occurs it certainly gets our attention and we respond quickly to make sure it is safe once again.”
Metro police is reminding everyone to walk in groups whenever possible and to stay alert when downtown.
