MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- One man is behind bars while his accomplice is still on the run after holding up a University of Memphis student.

"I was just doing my routine and then all of a sudden this guy comes out with a gun," Kem Gray Jr recalled.

Within moments, he said he was forced to take the wildest 30 minute ride of his life.

"At first it's just so shocking and then you just go numb."

Gray Jr said the man, now identified by police as Jaylin Pritchard, got out of the passenger side of a black sedan at a red light, alongside him and hopped into the SUV he was driving.

With a gun in his face, Gray Jr was told to drive to a bank and make a withdrawal.

When the bank declined his request, Gray said he was forced to drive 10 miles to a Bank of America.

"The guy that he was with was trailing us the whole time, to each destination, until the end when the guy got out of my truck.

Police have identified the driver as Shaquille Sugars.

As of Tuesday evening, he remains at large.

Pritchard turned himself in on Monday.

Gray Jr said he`ll never forget his red light experience but he`s grateful that everything worked out.

"They caught him with my phone and somebody found my wallet and mailed it to me."

Police told WREG a CrimeStoppers tip and the release of surveillance helped them to identify Pritchard.
