Mail Carrier Incident in Hendersonville

On September 2, 2017, at approximately 12:30 pm, (30 minutes past noon), the Hendersonville Police Department responded to an aggravated assault around the area of West Harbor Drive. According to the complainant, he was delivering mail in the area when a dark colored sedan occupied by two black males passed by at a high rate of speed. The complainant stated that one of the subjects in the vehicle pointed what appeared to be a gun in his direction and fired the gun. Even though the gun made a sound as if it were a real gun, there was no evidence that bullets were fired from the gun. According to the information collected thus far, it is questionable if this was a real gun.

Even though there is no evidence at this point that the weapon produced projectiles, the fact remains that the actions of the person that pointed the gun in the direction of the complainant placed the complainant in fear, which constitutes the crime of aggravated assault. It should be noted that the complainant did not sustain any injuries from the incident.

The Hendersonville Police Department is asking for anyone who may have information regarding this incident to contact the Criminal Investigation Division of the Hendersonville Police Department, 615-264-5303, or Hendersonville Crime Stoppers, 615-573-5400.

*********************************  Original Release  ****************************

June 07, 2017, approximately four minutes after midnight, Officer Jones observed a vehicle that was acting suspiciously on West Main Street, which led to a vehicle registration check and the registration check revealed that the vehicle was stolen. The stolen vehicle was a 2010 Toyota Corolla.  This vehicle is believed to have been stolen in Metro Nashville, May 31, 2017.  The vehicle traveled to a dead end business district on Molly Walton Dr. with the occupants abandoning the vehicle and fleeing on foot through a wooded area and across SR 386 to a nearby neighborhood.

This same date at approximately 40 minutes after midnight, the Hendersonville Police Department received a report of a carjacking on Chipwood Drive. Four black male suspects, at least one believed to have a gun, approached a male victim as he had returned home from work.  His phone and vehicle were stolen from him.  No injuries were reported.  The suspects then fled in the victim’s 2014 Honda Civic into Nashville.  Discovery of multiple auto burglaries in the area lead investigators to believe the suspects were trying to locate a vehicle containing keys when they observed the carjacking victim arriving to his home.

As of 2:46 am on June 7, the stolen vehicle was reportedly seen in the Whites Creek Pike area of Nashville.

Attached is a video from the neighbor that shows the four suspects that stole the victim’s vehicle on Chipwood Drive, just moments before the carjacking incident. Additional information will be released when available.  Investigation remains active.
