NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Two arrests are made after a Davidson County woman is robbed in her driveway.

Just before 5 p.m. yesterday, the victim returned home from the store to find a man in her driveway walking towards her, according to the affidavit. She told him to leave the property, at which time he pulled out a pistol.

The man asked for her purse and the woman threw it to him. The suspect escaped in a waiting car driven by a woman, according to a witness.
A Metro police officer pulled over the vehicle traveling on South 7th Street after observing it at around 6:30 p.m. Property belonging to the victim was found in the car, as was a semi-automatic pistol.

The driver, 21-year-old Nakesha Brown, later admitted to police to driving 22-year-old Christopher Martin to the location where he robbed the victim and then helped him get away. They are both being held on $100,000 bond for aggravated robbery with a weapon.
