A man with a hatchet tried to carjack woman in Nashville and police say he’s now off the streets.

It happened as the woman was getting out of her car at the Hillwood Pointe Apartments on Charlotte Pike – just down the road from Nashville West shopping center.

She told police the man pulled out the hatchet and demanded her car keys – that’s when a neighbor came out and scared him off.

Christopher William Hackworth is now behind bars on an attempted aggravated robbery charge.
