Nashville Fugitive Arrested In Chicago

CREATED Jan 9, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Chicago Police arrested a man wanted in Nashville for multiple counts of kidnapping and robbery.

Metro Nashville Police said 26-year-old Corey Taylor was held in Chicago on Nashville warrants in connection with an incident at an apartment on Glenrose Avenue on Monday night.

The 71-year-old victim told police he met a man named "Cory" at a bus station downtown a few weeks ago, and he had allowed him to sleep on his couch for a few days.

When a fight broke out Monday, Taylor allegedly pulled a knife, threatened to kill the victim and his family, and would not let them leave the apartment.

He then took several watches, a cell phone, cash, and the victim's car keys before fleeing the scene.

Investigation by detectives helped identify Taylor and they determined that he had ties to Chicago. An alert was sent to Illinois authorities, and a Chicago officer spotted Taylor inside the victim's 2005 Chevrolet Malibu on Wednesday night.

He was taken into custody without incident and was held on Nashville warrants charging five counts of aggravated kidnapping and one count of aggravated robbery. His return to Nashville was pending.
