MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A woman is in custody after police say she robbed her ex-boyfriend on his front porch and fired several shots as he ran in the house.
According to police, the man was on his porch on Dempster Avenue in South Memphis, leaving the house with thousands of dollars in cash in his pocket to go to a casino.
His ex-girlfriend, Kenosha Crawford, was on a porch nearby. He told her he was leaving.
That’s when Crawford allegedly pointed a gun at him and said, “Give me everything you got,” according to a police report.
The man pulled out $2,360 cash out of his pocket, threw the money at her, and ran inside the house.
As he ran, police say Crawford fired the gun at him several times. Police found 8-12 bullet holes in the front of his house.
The man’s two sons, ages 16 and 17, were also in the house at the time.
Police say this all happened Dec. 15, 2022, but Crawford, 28, was just booked into Jail East on Thursday, on charges of aggravated robbery and reckless endangerment.
“These charges that she got right now, they are going to be dropped,” said Polly Crawford, Kenosha Crawford’s sister.
Polly Crawford is sure of it as she talks about the recent arrest of her older sister.

Kenosha is accused of firing her gun and shattering the front glass door of the3 house. Her sister says the real crime is what she calls dishonesty about what really happened.
“He is really [going to] go get her out of jail and drop the charges because it really is a fake charge. He just wanted to get her out of the house,” said Polly Crawford.
Bond for Kenosha Crawford was set at $15,000. She is set to go before a judge on Monday.
