Antioch woman recalls being robbed by 4 teens with ‘Scream’ masks, armed with rifles

Scream masks car

Authorities in multiple counties are searching for four young suspects involved in an armed robbery and pursuit Wednesday night.  

It began around 8:30 p.m. on Sunsail Drive in Antioch.  

Four suspects wearing all-black clothing, “Scream” masks and armed with rifles robbed a woman outside her home in the driveway.

“I was shaking and couldn’t move,” the victim told News 2. She didn’t want to be shown or named because the suspects are still are out there. 

“At first I thought it was a joke but the guns coming towards me I was terrified,” she said. “I was terrified in that moment and then to hear them say get on the ‘f’in ground’ I knew it was real and there was nothing I could do but hold my hands up.”

She says the suspects demanded her keys but didn’t take the car when they saw what was in the back seat: an infant.

“I’m thinking to myself if they jump in this car and take off the baby in it. All of that was going through my head. I was thinking about my niece at the same time cause it’s her baby,” the victim said. “But the guy who had the gun on me turned and said ‘I’m not messin’ with no baby'”.

The suspects took off in the car they had arrived in, which Mt. Juliet Police say was a Chevy Cobalt that had also been reported stolen.

Just after midnight, Mt. Juliet police began pursuing the stolen vehicle back into Davidson County when they lost sight of the car near the Nashville International Airport, said Metro police.

News 2 obtained dash-cam video of the pursuit. 

Metro police reported officers found the car abandoned on Saturn Drive, just off Briley Parkway. 

The victim believes the suspects are teens because of their voices. She hopes they are apprehended quickly.

“It sounded like they were trying to sound like they were men but they didn’t have any bass in their voice,” she said. “I definitely hope they’re caught for their sake and for everybody’s sake. They could get hurt or something could go wrong.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME.
