NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police have arrested a 25-year-old who is accused of pointing a gun at a man’s face during a robbery inside a parking garage in downtown Nashville.
The incident occurred at a parking garage in the 200 block of Commerce Street on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
According to an arrest affidavit, the victim told officers he was returning to his parked vehicle in the garage and noticed that the car’s lights were flashing.
