NASHVILLE — A Castalia man is accused of barging into a home, assaulting his former girlfriend and taking a man’s gun before speeding away and wrecking his car, according to authorities. 

Randall Lamm, 28, of Layton Store Road outside Castalia, faces two counts each of second-degree kidnapping and assault by pointing a gun and one count each of armed robbery, first-degree burglary and assault on a female. He was jailed under a $400,000 secured bond. 

Sheriff’s deputies were called to a home on the 3600 block of Loop Road north of Nashville around 8:40 p.m. Tuesday. A dispatcher told deputies that a man later identified as Lamm was holding another man at gunpoint and later fled the scene after taking the victim’s gun along with his own firearm, said Chief Deputy Brandon Medina of the Nash County Sheriff’s Office.

“The investigation revealed the suspect, Randall Lamm, and the female occupant of the residence were romantically involved in the past, but Lamm would not accept the fact (that) the relationship was indeed over,” Medina said in a Wednesday press release. 

The victims were inside the Loop Road home when they heard the front door open. The man went to retrieve his gun when the woman allegedly saw Lamm rapidly approaching them with a gun pointed at the man, Medina said. 

Deputies say the woman was able to get past Lamm and called 911.

Lamm is accused of trying to grab the phone away from the woman. Medina said he fled the home when he couldn’t disconnect the 911 call. 

Shortly after, Lamm was involved in a motor vehicle wreck on Rocky Cross Road outside Middlesex. Deputies took him into custody without further incident. 

Medina said both the suspect’s and victim’s firearms were recovered.
