NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two teenagers were arrested in last Saturday’s armed carjacking on Lipscomb University’s campus.

Brendon Prettyman, 18, was arrested Friday night. Justin Webb, 18 was arrested Saturday. Police say more arrests are expected.

Prettyman and Webb are both facing the same charge of robbery-carjacking.  According to police, they live at the same house on Glendale Lane in Nashville.

The carjacking happened at 11 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 8. when a 63-year old Lipscomb employee was driving out of parking lot on Granny White Pike.

According to a press release, she stopped to text a family member when a man tapped on her driver’s side window with a pistol and told her to get out of the car.

As she reached for her purse, a second man reportedly appeared on the passenger side and told her, “You’re not taking that.”

She got out of her 2003 Hyundai Sonata and noticed a third suspect nearby, and then the gunman told her to run.

The carjackers took off in her car, and she called police from a home nearby. A fourth suspect is possible.
