15-Year-Old Charged with Two South Nashville Armed Robberies
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
15-year-old Markhel Farr is charged in Juvenile Court with four counts of aggravated robbery for his alleged involvement in two armed hold-ups Sunday night.
The first robbery occurred at 8:15 p.m. at the Dominion House Apartments, 5099 Linbar Drive. Two men in the process of moving were in the parking lot, loading up a truck, when they were approached by two masked suspects, one armed with a handgun. They took one victim’s cell phone and fled in a grey Nissan Armada being driven by a third suspect.
About 20 minutes later, officers responded to a second robbery involving the same suspect vehicle at Hickory Point Apartments, 15180 Old Hickory Boulevard. In that case, two men had just returned from the grocery store and were getting out of their vehicle when they were approached by two suspects wearing black ski masks, one armed with a handgun. They again took one victim’s cell phone and fled in the Nissan Armada.
Officers spotted the suspect SUV at 8:45 p.m. on Calais Circle. All three suspects fled from the vehicle. Farr was apprehended after a foot chase. He was wearing a black ski mask. The cell phone taken during the Linbar Drive robbery was recovered inside the Armada.
The investigation continues into identifying the remaining two suspects. Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
