NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- An 18-year-old and two juveniles are arrested after ambushing a driver in Antioch.
Three teens set up trash cans in the road Sunday morning on Richards Road near Artelia Drive to stop cars as they attempted to pass and commit a robbery, according to the Metro police affidavit obtained by FOX 17 News. The juveniles hid as lookouts, while 18-year-old Eduardo Mora-Pizana allegedly pulled a gun on the driver of an SUV that approached and got out to move the cans.
The victim complied with Mora-Pizana's demands for money and gave him $80. The suspects ran away on foot.
All three suspects were caught 20 minutes later walking on Oakwood Terrace. Mora-Pizana is jailed on $50,000 bond.
