Armed robber wanted after holding victims at knifepoint

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Authorities are searching for the man accused of robbing employees inside two local businesses at knifepoint.

Both incidents happened Tuesday evening.

Around 5:30 p.m., authorities were called to the Family Dollar in the 900 block of Jackson where they were told one person was held at knife point as the suspect demanded money.

About an hour later and only a handful of miles away, officers received another call from the Poplar Avenue Taco Bell.

Police believe the same man entered that restaurant and did the exact same thing.

However, after the armed robbery, the suspect was seen getting into a gold or tan Nissan Altima.

Thankfully, no one was injured.

If you can help, call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
