NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Police arrested a Texas fugitive believed to be responsible for robbing three people in downtown Nashville.
Deputy U.S. Marshals and Metro Nashville Police tracked down 29-year-old Antonio Caruthers.
Police say he was the man caught on camera robbed three people on Polk Avenue.
In Plano, Texas, Caruthers was wanted for the robbery of an 84-year-old woman in a Wal-Mart parking lot. The victim reported that Caruthers followed her from a credit union, put a gun to her neck and took her purse.
A witness heard the victim screaming and came to her aid. The witness reported that Caruthers pointed a pistol at him before fleeing in a newer model black Honda Civic, the same type vehicle used in the September 21st Nashville case.
A second arrest warrant charging Caruthers with aggravated assault was also issued in Texas.
Plano authorities say Caruthers had ties to Nashville. Police found a possible address for him on Delta Avenue. Caruthers was taken into custody without incident at his workplace on Allied Drive.
