This story is brought to you by Scoop: Nashville as part of the #bspotter / #VisitMusicCity series which features tourist and downtown-related arrests in Music City.
21-year-old Avaunt Montez Savannah and an accomplice were reportedly in the apartment of his girlfriend, Jessica Stephens, on December 31. Avaunt’s friend and his girlfriend were arguing back and forth and swapping insults. As Jessica opened the door for all three of them to leave the apartment, she says the friend grabbed her purse and demanded her money. She says Avaunt and his friend both then pulled handguns and pointed them at her and took her rent money ($1380), her cell phone, and her car keys from her purse. The friend stated he was “about to smoke” the victim while acting like he was about to pistol whip her. The two ordered her to go into her bedroom and stay there for twenty minutes while they fled. Arrest warrants were issued, and Montez was booked into custody this week.
Avaunt Montez Savannah was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 8th, charged with false imprisonment and aggravated robbery. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $52,500.
