Mom, 6-year-old son held up at gunpoint

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A mother and her child were robbed at gunpoint inside a Highland Heights apartment complex.

Police say 19-year-old Tevin Campbell was targeting people at the Grahamwood Place Apartments because he lives there.

“I thought he was going to take my son and he was going to do something to me,” said Erika Suhul.

Erika Suhul doesn’t live at Grahamwood Place. She went there Saturday with her 6-year-old son to visit a friend and was robbed in the parking lot.

Johnathan says he watched as the man put a gun to his mom’s head.

“I thought they were going to shoot my mom right here in the brain and then she is going to be dead and go to the ambulance,” said Johnathan Oseguerh Suhul.

Suhul says Campbell got her purse, $200 and her son’s tablet.

Police say a day later, he took another woman’s purse at gunpoint in the parking lot.

Suhul is glad he was caught, but says her son is now living in fear.

“The next day when I went to buy something, he said, ‘I looked and the man is not coming with the gun again.’ I say he is no more. He’s in jail,” said Suhul.

Police say they received a tip that Campbell was responsible for the robberies and both women were able to identify him.

He’s charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and is being held on $50,000 bond.
