The second suspect wanted in the attack of a 59-year-old woman has been arrested.

Detectives identified the suspect on Sunday as 22-year-old Christopher Darnell. He was taken into custody overnight. 

Darnell has been charged with aggravated robbery resulting in serious injury and two counts of fraudulently using the victim’s credit card.

The attack happened on November 19 when the 59-year-old victim was walking home from a performance at TPAC. Two men attacked her near First Tennessee Park by hitting her in the head with a metal stake and robbing her.

The other suspect in the case, identified as 18-year-old Brandon Dotson, surrendered to officers Saturday.

At the time of his arrest, Darnell was free on a $3,500 bond following an arrest in August for aggravated burglary.
