Queshan Brooks, 20, was arrested Thursday and charged with three different street robberies and a hold up on May 17 at Pick-A-Flick on Dickerson Pike.

According to police reports, a gunman approached two women on Chicamauga Avenue on Sunday. He demanded their purses, but fled in a Nissan Maxima when they began to scream. A citizen, who was present at the scene, followed the suspect vehicle until the passenger fired two shots.

Police located the vehicle Thursday on Brickmont Court and took Brooks into custody at a residence nearby.

During an interview with detectives, police said Brooks admitted he was the getaway driver in Sunday’s attempted robbery. He also admitted to being involved in the May 17 Pick-A-Flick hold up when two gunmen entered and demanded cash.

Police also said Brooks admitted he was the gunman in two additional street robberies.

On May 11, a man and woman were robbed of their wallet and purse while on West Eastland Avenue and Laurent Street. The second occurred on May 18 when a woman was robbed of her purse while walking on Laurent Street near Chicamauga Avenue.

Brooks was also charged with attempted criminal homicide for the shots fired at the witness Sunday. He is being held in lieu of $640,000 bond. The investigation continues into the identification of Brooks’ accomplice(s).
