Authorities have identified two of the three suspects wanted in connection with the armed robbery of a man Monday at Fairfield Inn in Smyrna.

Arrest warrants have been issued for Nashville residents Daniel T. Jones, 28, and Brandon L. Leonard, 28, in connection with the incident, which occurred just after 6 p.m. in the 800 block of Expo Drive, according to a Smyrna Police Department press release.

Jones, Leonard, a third male suspect who has not been identified, and a female juvenile are accused of luring the man to the hotel, where they robbed him at gunpoint and stole his wallet and cell phone.

The trio fled the scene in an older model Pontiac sedan without the female suspect, whose identity is not being release because she is younger than 18 years old. She was quickly apprehended when police arrived at the scene.

Jones is described as a white male who is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs an estimated 160 pounds.

Leonard, who is also a white, is known to drive a blue Chevy Impala, and police believe he may be in the Antioch area.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts, as well as the identity of the third suspect, should call Smyrna police at 615-459-6644.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Crime Stoppers at 615-893-7867.
