NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - A Grubhub delivery driver was carjacked Tuesday afternoon in East Nashville.

“I just opened my front door, and I quickly saw what looked like three or four kids running down the sidewalk and a helicopter hovering on them,” said J.D. Tyler.

Around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Metro Police say a Grubhub delivery driver was carjacked at the Oakwood Flats apartments. Metro’s helicopter, and patrol officers, were all involved--they say the four suspects ran away, and they arrested them moments later on North 6th Street.

The four suspects were identified as the following:

  • 15-year-old Bra’Anna Harbison
  • 15-year-old Kentrell Baugh
  • 15-year-old Ra’Tarius Roberts
  • 16-year-old Markel Smith

Neighborhood residents went outside when they heard the commotion.

“Pretty soon three cop cars came from right in front of my house and then two around the corner and then cornered them and they just hopped right out they had their guns on them the people running, and they just stopped immediately and dropped. They had the dogs out, and they arrested them immediately,” said Brayan Enriquez.

A spokesperson with GrubHub released the following statement:

“The safety of the drivers and couriers who use Grubhub is our top priority and nobody should have to experience any violation of their personal safety or the theft of their vehicle under any circumstance. We stand ready to support the law enforcement investigation and work with state and local governments across the country as they take steps to address the unacceptable spike in vehicle thefts.”
