NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Two teens were arrested after police say they robbed a 62-year-old woman at gunpoint as she was unloading groceries at her home in Green Hills.

Metro Nashville police said 16-year-old Troy Cole and 15-year-old Christon Collins demanded money from the victim and blocked her from getting back into her car. The teenagers ordered the woman at gunpoint to go inside the home, where they demanded money again.

The victim told officers when the teenagers got near her backdoor, she was able to shove one of the out of her home. The suspects then both ran from the neighborhood.

Police used surrounding home surveillance systems to identify Cole and Collins, who were arrested Wednesday and charged for aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping.
