Crime of the Week #17


Memphis Police responded to a carjacking report at 7:18 p.m. Wednesday, May 17, 2023. When the first officers on the scene arrived at 3558 Lamar Avenue they found a man who had earlier in the evening pulled into the parking lot with a deflated tire.

While he waited in line to get the flat fixed two men approached him at gunpoint and demanded he get out of his vehicle. He complied. The two men drove off. They were last seen driving north on Lamar, one tire flat.

Here are descriptions of the suspects. The first was a black male, between 20 and 30 years old, of medium complexion, five-foot-seven, thin build, black shirt, blue jean shorts and white athletic shoes. The second was a black male between 20 and 30, medium complexion, five-foot eight, thin, gray hoodie, black shorts and white slides.

Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying the two men.
