NASHVILLE, Tenn.--A 20-year-old is back in Davidson County after a string of brazen armed robberies in Hendersonville and Nashville.

Anthony Keeton and his co-conspirator were arrested by Hendersonville Police on July 22nd after they robbed two landscapers finishing a job near Lakeside Park Drive. According to arrest affidavits for Keeton, he was also involved in several Nashville armed robberies in the days before his arrest.

Only July 20th, police say a woman unloading her car outside her home was approached by Keeton after he exited a car parked in her neighbor's driveway. Keeton approached her with a gun in-hand and stated "Give me your money!" according to the woman. When she told him she didn't have money, Keeton grabbed her by the shirt and started pulling her to the backyard.

The woman reacted quickly, pressing the panic button on her key fob which sounded the alarm. Keeton took the keys, went to her car and stole her purse before fleeing to the getaway car parked next door.

That same day, police were dispatched to a home on Torbay Drive where a man says he had just come home from work to eat lunch and was sitting on his patio when Keeton exited from a silver car, gun in-hand.

This time, Keeton did not say anything and pistol-whipped the man. Keeton then took the man's cell phone and wallet before fleeing. Police say on the 20th, there were six other robbery complaints in the area.

The next day, police say Keeton started the morning by entering Dad's Towing and taking a vehicle that had been towed there. Later in the day, he allegedly robbed a Brenda Lane resident in his garage at gunpoint.
