NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – One person was arrested in connection to a carjacking early Tuesday morning just south of downtown Nashville, and police are still looking for four others.
Police said a woman was parking her car around 8:30 p.m. Monday night in the 1200 block of 4th Avenue South, not far from Chestnut Street, when she was approached by a man with a gun who demanded her valuables.
That suspect took her car, a 2008 gold Nissan Sentra, and drove away with four other people; two men and two women, according to police.
Later in the night, around 1:15 a.m., officers in the Green Street and Fairfield Avenue area saw the victim’s car.
One of the passengers ran away, but officers said they caught up with him and took him into custody. However, a woman drove off in the car and eventually crashed on the Interstate 40 exit ramp to Fesslers Lane and ran away.
K9 officers were called in, but weren’t able to locate her or the other three people who had been in the car earlier during the carjacking.
All of the suspects were described as being in their late teens. Anyone with information about the incident should call metro police at 651-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
