NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Some of the victims of a shocking string of robberies in the Midtown area of Nashville spoke about their terrifying experiences.

Thirteen people were robbed at gunpoint over the weekend in three separate attacks.

One of the victims, Anna Daley, told News 2 she was enjoying a night out on Church Street before the fun turned frightening around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

“I thought I was going to die,” she said.

“I was sitting in the car and they opened the door and they took my arm and they pulled me out,” Daley continued. “And then when they pulled me out, they put the gun to my head and told me to give them my wallet and phone.”

Her friend Tony Primm was inside the car, too, and also held up by the unknown suspects.

“I just felt he was going to pull that trigger, but thank god he did not and I am still here today,” Primm told News 2.

Four men took off with their belongings but not before firing about five shots into the air.

“It was really loud. My ears were ringing for at least five minutes because it was right there,” Daley said.

“Only had two bucks in my wallet, so I hope they are happy with that,” Primm added.

According to a spokeswoman with Metro police, Daley and Primm were among 10 targeted in the same parking lot.

The suspects were described as four black males who fled the scene in a white Honda Accord or Civic with tinted windows and chrome wheels. The descriptions of the suspects are as follows:

  • Black male, 6 feet tall, with tattoos and piercings and wearing a white shirt.
  • Black male, 6 feet 3 inches tall and wearing a gray shirt
  • 2 Black males, both 5 feet 11 inches tall and both wearing plaid shirts

The other robberies took place on 16th and 17th avenues near Midtown on Music Row before the Midtown robberies.

The victims hope the men are caught soon.

“Like I’m honestly scared to go to Nashville at this point,” Primm said. “Karma is something else, and they’ll get theirs, that’s for sure.”

Metro police are still investigating if all the robberies are connected. Anyone with information should call them at 615-862-8600 or Nashville Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
