NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man and woman have been arrested after authorities say they broke into a Madison home and held a family at gunpoint, forcing one of the victims to withdraw money from a nearby ATM. 

29-year-old Jeffrey McNew, a previously-convicted felon, and Sadie Arnold, 23, were both arrested Monday morning in connection with the Sunday morning home invasion after they were taken to area hospitals for injuries in an unrelated car crash. 

According to police, McNew and Arnold entered the home on Neelys Bend through the kitchen window around 7:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. They confronted two of the victims, a husband and wife, sleeping in their bedroom. Then, went into their 14-year-old son's room and took him and a friend staying over that night into the parent's room at gunpoint. 

Police say they forced the father to drive them to an ATM to withdraw $400, and then stole the family's jewelry, change, and other valuables, including their Ford Focus, which was found unoccupied near the family's home.

An investigation by Madison Precinct Detectives led Metro Police to identify the robbers' car, a 1997 gold Buick Century with body damage, after the suspects were involved in a car accident on Donelson Pike on Sunday morning after committing the aggravated robbery. 

Around 10:50 a.m., police say Arnold was driving the Buick when she failed to negotiate a turn into a residence and struck a utility pole. McNew was in the passenger seat. Both were transported to hospitals for injuries. 

A short time after being released from Summit Medical Center, McNew was arrested by detectives charged with two counts of both aggravated assault and aggravated robbery when he admitted to involvement in the Sunday-morning robbery. Already a felon convicted of other robberies, McNew is being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond. 

Arnold, who is in stable condition but still being treated at Vanderbilt Medical Center, will also be charged with aggravated assault and robbery upon her release.

The victims of Sunday's home invasion were not injured in the incident. The items taken from them during the robbery were recovered from the Buick Century after the accident and on Arnold at the hospital.
