A female music executive was kidnapped and robbed after leaving a meeting at Nashville’s SoHo House last week just before 8 p.m.
Sources share that the two robbers came up behind the woman as she was getting into her car. They both pointed guns at her head as they instructed her to get into the driver’s seat of the vehicle.
The victim was using her AirPods to talk on the phone with her friend when the kidnapping occurred. Luckily, he heard her scream and phoned another mutual friend to call the police, as he was out of the country.
After demanding her cell phone, the robbers looked up banks in the area, and made her drive to three different ATMs. Though she explained that she only had credit cards, they made her try to get cash out and were unsuccessful.
Next, they had her contact a friend to ask for money. Before meeting the friend, the kidnappers made the woman drive back to SoHo House. One robber got into a dark-colored sedan and followed the victim’s car to meet the friend, who had called the police to help arrange a set-up.
Once the robber in the car saw the police, he grabbed the woman’s keys, opened the door and ran to the other robber’s sedan. Because the victim’s car was idling and doesn’t require a key to drive after its started, she floored it towards West End where the police were waiting. The suspects took off with her phone and wallet.
The victim, while shaken, is physically okay, though her family members have received threats via text message following the kidnapping.
Police are now looking for the robbers, who the victim describes as Black men in their 20s wearing black clothing and masks.
