NASHVILLE, Tenn 6/22/17.--Metro Nashville Police are asking for assistance identifying a man who tried to kidnap an 81-year-old in a Walmart parking lot last week.
Police say the suspect watched as several elderly customers exited the 4040 Nolensville Pike store before he followed the 81-year-old man to his car. The suspect grabbed the man and held him at knife-point then ordered the man to get into his own trunk.
A good Samaritan who saw what was happening exited his truck and kicked the suspect, who fled the scene on foot.
Police arrived on scene but found only the victim. They are hoping to speak to the good Samaritan who was driving a black F-150 and any other witnesses. The suspect is described as a white male, possibly Hispanic, in his early 20s with short sideburns. He was wearing a dark watch on his left wrist, beige clothing, light tennis shoes with new white laces, and a flat bill ball cap.
