Rutledge faces two counts of aggravated robbery. She may also face additional charges. 

Police are also investigating the armed robberies of another pizza delivery driver on Mitchell Road and a man outside his home on Belle Forrest Avenue. 

Officials believe Rutledge could be a suspect in these incidents because they occurred in the same area around the same time as the first two robberies. 

Rutledge was booked into the Metro jail Saturday.
