Hendersonville Police say they have arrested two suspects accused in a violent robbery.

According to officials, the victim was picked up by his female friend, Jennifer Johnston, at the Speedway Market on West Main Street in a U-Haul van on June 15.

Once inside the vehicle, the victim said a man ordered him to turn over the contents of his pockets, striking him with a Taser several times. After the robbery, the victim jumped from the moving vehicle.

Police said they tracked down the suspects on Thursday after receiving information that they were at a motel in Nashville.

Johnston, 42, is charged with aggravated robbery. Her bond was set at $30,000.

Her accused accomplice, 31-year-old Austin Johnson, is also charged with aggravated robbery. His bond was set at $35,000.

Both suspects are scheduled to appear in court on July 25.
