Woman robbed, carjacked at gunpoint; 4 teens in custody

MADISON, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro police have four teens in custody after a supervisor at the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts near Rivergate Mall was robbed at gunpoint.

Natalie Turner, a 19-year-old supervisor at store, told News 2 she was held up at gunpoint and her car was stolen Sunday morning as she arrived at work.

Turner said one of the suspects came up to her window and demanded cash as well as the keys to her car. She did as they asked and the men took off with her car, cellphone and $12.

“I guess if I didn’t do what I was told then I might not be here right now,” said Turner.

She then called 911 who alerted authorities.

Sergeant Chruck Rutzky with Metro police said they recovered her car Monday morning and initially arrested three teens, ages 15, 17, and 18.

Tuesday night a fourth suspect, age 17, surrendered at the juvenile detention center. All four are now in custody.

He said all three teens are charged with theft.

“It’s my first car and I love that car,” said Turner. “I was attached to that car so I’m glad it’s safe now.”

Turner doesn’t have her car back yet because police said they still need to process it for evidence.

“I was told it could take a couple of days for it to get processed and everything, but I am really glad that it’s safe,” she said.

Sgt. Rutzky said this carjacking is connected to another that happened around 12:30 a.m. Monday on White Bridge Pike in west Nashville where a 2008 black Volvo was taken at gunpoint.

The sergeant also said about an hour after that robbery, an officer found both cars on Chesapeake Circle, leading the arrest of the three teenagers in both incidents.

The investigation is ongoing. Further details weren’t immediately known.
