(Metro Police)

UPDATE (3-15)--Metro Police say the suspect in the carjacking has turned himself in to police today. The suspect is a juvenile, just 14-years-old. The teen was on a probation at the time of the Gatewood Avenue carjacking.


Metro Police are trying to identify the young man who they said stole a woman's car from her East Nashville apartment building parking lot.

Police said the victim's 2009 Red Nissan Altima was stolen from a parking lot at 101 Gatewood Avenue about 7 p.m. Sunday.

The suspect approached the victim and demanded that she give him the keys and threatened “or I’ll hurt you.”

Police said the suspect then grabbed the keys from the victim's hand and got into her car. While he waited for the security gate to open, the victim filmed him with her cell phone.

No weapon was seen.

The Altima was recovered later that night in Madison.

The suspect is described as a young black man who stands about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs about 150 pounds.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect from the video surveillance clip linked below is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
