MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Police Department is searching for a suspect who is accused of carjacking a woman's vehicle at a gas station in the 2700 block of South Perkins Road in Parkway Village Saturday evening. The victim told officers she was pumping gas into her 2007 Audi A4  at Citgo when a black Sedan pulled up to the pump next to her. A man then exited the passenger side and approached the victim with a firearm. He took off with the woman's vehicle after obtaining the keys. He was seen heading north on Perkins Road followed by the black Sedan. WREG spoke with a carjacking victim in September 2017 who decided to take the investigation into her own hands to try and get her car back. With this latest carjacking, customers want the spree to stop once and for all, and that starts with people speaking up. "Leave these people alone. Get a job," customer Allene Barbee said. "It would scare me. You aren't even safe in broad daylight," customer Joslyn Gray said.

As investigators search for clues to track down the duo in the black sedan, customers hope this will be the last carjacking the community chooses to stay silent about.

"I want it to stop, because I have a daughter, and I don't want her pumping her gas and get robbed," customer Shaun Grandberry said. No arrests have been made. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at (901)-528-CASH
