A Brentwood woman who took a late-night Uber ride from downtown Nashville was the victim of a burglary this past week, according to the latest crime analysis from the Brentwood Police Department.

Assistant Police Chief Thomas Walsh said the woman reported that a man approached her while she was waiting for her Uber driver downtown.

Shortly after she arrived at her home on the 1000 block of Steeplechase Drive around 3:40 a.m. Sunday morning, she said she saw the same man at her back door.

The man came into the woman’s house and took her purse, which the victim had left in the kitchen. He then fled in an unknown vehicle.
