A woman fought back after a man tried to steal her purse from inside her car at a West End Avenue gas station on Tuesday.
The woman was loading items into her car at the Exxon Tiger Market at 3400 West End Avenue when Ezell Graham, 31, allegedly reached into her car and took her purse and a box of doughnuts.
The victim reportedly ran after Graham and took her purse back from him, which was when bystanders in the parking lot noticed and rushed to help her. Three men restrained Ezell until Metro police arrived.
Once officers responded, Graham reportedly struggled as they attempted to handcuff him. After he was handcuffed, Graham allegedly tried to run away before officers placed him in a patrol car.
According to an affidavit, Graham attempted to kick out the back window of the patrol car so officers placed him in hobble restraints.
Officers have also identified Graham as a suspect in other robberies that took place Monday night. Those incidents took place at Nolensville Pike, Harding Place, and Longdale Drive. Police say he fled in a silver Acura during each one.
He is accused of taking a man’s cell phone, another woman’s purse, and an iPad from a residence, and a woman’s wallet, items which were recovered Tuesday inside Graham’s car, the silver Acura.
He was booked into the Metro jail and charged with three counts of robbery, two counts of attempted robbery, aggravated burglary, evading arrest, and theft. His bond was set at $125,000.
He has previous convictions for felony theft, domestic assault, assault, and drug possession.
