A teenager arrested Monday is accused of carjacking three women in the Edgehill neighborhood. Metro Police say he pistol-whipped the driver after she showed him how to start the car.
It happened Sunday afternoon near Villa Place. Metro Nashville Police said a 15-year-old suspect put a pistol to the driver’s stomach and demanded she hand over the keys to her 2022 Mercedes SUV. The victim had to show the teen how to start the car. That’s when she was pistol-whipped by the teen and two accomplices.
Detectives used an MNPD helicopter to follow the SUV to Ed Temple Boulevard where a spike strip was deployed. The speeding Mercedes then crashed into another vehicle, police said.
Minor injuries were reported in both the carjacking and wreck.
