NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A woman posing as an Uber driver robbed a man after picking him up at a Nashville hotel.

Metro Nashville police said the victim was picked up at a hotel, located just off of 5th Avenue. He realized something was wrong when they weren't going in the right direction.

A few blocks away, they stopped and a man got into the back, put the victim in a head lock and said "don't move or I'll snap your neck,” according to a police report.

They took $200, his credit card and a hotel key.

Investigators tracked down one of the suspects, identified as William Griggs, when he was seen on surveillance video using the victim's credit card at a gas station, police said.

The woman has yet to be arrested.
