Police: Offer to smoke marijuana led to South Nashville carjacking

Talisia Muse

A woman is accused of carjacking a man who drove her to a South Nashville apartment Thursday evening after the two met at a fast food restaurant.

Talisia Muse, 19, was booked into the Metro jail on charges including carjacking, theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Metro police said the victim met Muse, and a male, around 6 p.m. at the Burger King on Harding Place near Nolensville Pike.

The victim told officers the two asked if he wanted to smoke marijuana and he offered to give them a ride to an apartment on Wallace Road.

When they parked at the apartment complex, the victim stated Muse pulled out a handgun and demanded his money, cell phone and car.

The victim gave Muse his vehicle along with $11 in cash, police said.

He was ordered to the ground and told officers that Muse fired one round from the handgun, so he ran as the suspects drove off in his vehicle.

Detectives were able to track the vehicle through the company the victim used to purchase it.

When Muse was taken into custody, police said she told officers “I just took the vehicle and wanted to get out of South Nashville, but I guess I got on the wrong highway.”

Metro police have not said if the male suspect was in custody.
