NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man suspected of a Springfield home burglary last week, in which a child was present, has been arrested after he was spotted by an alert citizen Tuesday in Nashville.

Joshua Harvell, 21, is accused of breaking through the front window of a home Thursday morning, and briefly pointing a gun at the teen girl who was home with her little sister. The teen apparently knew Harvell, and Harvell didn't take anything from the house before he fled the scene after jumping from a second-story window.

A woman called Metro police Tuesday, after she saw a man she believed to be Harvell, recognizing him from a television news report, near Allenwood Drive in East Nashville.

The woman provided a description of the man's vehicle, and officers discovered he was Harvell.

Harvell, who has a criminal history that includes robbery and burglary, was transferred back to Robertson County, where he is now charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated assault and theft.
