Midtown Hills Precinct detectives are working to identify the four young men who Saturday night carjacked a woman who was sitting in her vehicle on the campus of Lipscomb University at 3901 Granny White Pike.
The victim was driving out of the Lipscomb Academy parking lot where she works when she stopped to text a family member at 11 p.m. While she was texting, one of the suspects tapped on her driver side window with a handgun, telling her to get out of her 2003 blue Hyundai Sonata. As she reached for her purse prior to exiting the vehicle, a second suspect appeared on the passenger side and told her “you’re not taking that.” She got out of the car and noticed a third suspect nearby when the gunman told her to run. She called police from a nearby residence. The suspects fled in her Sonata.
The four suspects arrived in a Toyota 4 Runner with a sunroof and possibly a sticker in the windshield on the lower driver side. The stolen Sonata, Tennessee license plate R1500W, has not been recovered.
Anyone who recognizes the suspects or suspect vehicle from the attached surveillance photos is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463. Callers to Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous and qualify for a cash reward. Persons can also send an electronic tip by texting the word “CASH” along with the message to 274637 (CRIMES), or online at http://www.nashvillecrimestoppers.com.
