Group of robbers terrorize people in Midtown, South Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. РFor nearly a week, police say people in different parts of town have been terrorized by a group of young men after cash or whatever they  have on them.

Police say at least seven people were held up at gunpoint in four different robberies, and say two of them were in Midtown.

Saturday night, a couple was robbed in the Parking Lot of the P & H cafe on Madison, and Tuesday night, another couple was robbed near Madison and Belvedere after leaving a Mexican restaurant.

A couple hours later, police say a husband and wife were robbed while they were closing up their grocery store in the 1600 hundred block of Lauderdale in South Memphis.

Wednesday night, a man was robbed while walking along Jackson Avenue to the Rainbow Inn.

“I was walking through their group and that’s when they knocked me down and robbed me,” said Charles Graham.

In each robbery the victims said they were held up by a group of three to six young men carrying guns and some wearing bandanas.

Shortly after the robbery on Jackson, police arrested Jackson Michael Williams, Cavious Watkins and Derrick Wilkins.

So far, only Williams has admitted to being involved in all four robberies.

If you know anything about the robberies, call Crime Stoppers at 528-CASH.

    Oh but our good Mayor says crime is down in Memphis. I wonder why the thieves do not hit him or his wife? Then he will know about crime.

      It is down, down on Beale Street where all police are, they do not care about midtown. They moved the only precinct off of Union Avenue, guess they think we don’t matter. They didn’t even have the courtesy to tell us where they moved it too. As for the mayor and his lies, any of you people that believe his BS are stupid, he is a racist and cares nothing about ALL OF THE PEOPLE IN MEMPHIS, we are not one people we are divided in every way none for the good.. If you vote for him again, you are fools.
