Would-be thief leaves fingertip behind at south Nashville business

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Police have arrested a robbery suspect who reportedly left behind a piece of his finger after a south Nashville business was broken into early Friday morning.

Police were called to the Sue’s Beauty Supply on the corner of Lafayette and Lewis Street just after 1:30 a.m.

The severed fingertip was found by investigators near the front window, which was broken out during the burglary attempt.

Officers saw a man running across the street and chased him but lost him in the Tony Sudekum homes area.

Steven Spivey, 33, was identified as the suspect and taken into custody around 4:30 a.m.

The suspect is described as a black man wearing a gray shirt, black pants and a stocking cap.

The suspect description is similar to one given by police in burglary incidents from overnight where windows were broken out of two Nashville-area Subway restaurants.

Both the Hermitage Avenue and Charlotte Pike locations were reportedly targeted.

No additional information was immediately released. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
