GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. - A Good Samaritan said he was shot, beaten and robbed by two men after giving them a ride.

The victim called Goodlettsville police early Sunday morning to report the crime. He told officers he gave the two men a ride to Dorchester Court in the Windsor Green Subdivision in Goodlettsville.

Once he stopped the vehicle, he said one of the men pulled out a gun and told him to give him the money.

When he refused, one of the men shot him in the leg.

The victim got out of his car and tried to confront to two men as they walked away. That’s when he said both men starting beating him, causing him to fall to the ground. The two men then took his wallet, and stole $90 in cash from inside before fleeing the scene, according to the victim.

Police searched the area, and later found one of the men matching the description of the victim’s attackers. Travaris Crane, age 20, was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault.

Crane was booked on $125,000 bond at the Metro Jail.
