WHITE HOUSE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The man robbed in his own driveway over the weekend told News 2 that he wants to warn others.

“You just can’t trust people no more.”

The man asked News 2 not to show his face or share his name. He added that he and his family are still shaken up after Saturday’s robbery.

Police responded to the call at 6:30 p.m. in the 100 block of Highland Drive.

Surveillance video from a nearby neighbor captured the entire ordeal. In the video you can see when the victim arrived home and exited his car. He was then waved down by two black men in their mid-20’s.

According to police, after taking the victim’s wallet, both men jumped into the getaway car and drove off toward Highway 31W.

The victim told police the suspect’s getaway car was possibly a gray or silver Ford Focus.
