MEMPHIS, Tenn. --The search is on for a man who police said kidnapped and assaulted a woman.

Three men are already in jail for the crime and charged with kidnapping and assault.

"If you can see it's stuff on the ground from when they got the fighting," Christy Randle said. "They knocked my grill over and everything."

Two of Randle's sons are suspects.

One son's is locked up, and the other is still on the run.

Officers said the four guys forced the woman into a car at gunpoint

The victim told police the guys drove her around and threatened to bring her to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park park to beat her up.

"It's kind of just sad you know, nowadays it's just so much crime going on," Robert Briggs said. "It's just pitiful you know."

Police said the men changed their minds and brought the victim back to a home on Pennsylvania.

The men allegedly beat the woman with a stick, a gun, and their fists.

The woman was also kicked in the head while police said the men threatened to kill her.

"These young folks don't -- they don't have regard for life or whatever," Briggs said.

"When she told the police what happened she didn't tell the police exactly what happened," Randle told WREG.

Randle claimed the fight started after the woman broke into her house and stole things.

"I feel like what they should have did when they got back here -- we should've called the police and let the police come pick her up," Randle explained.

Randle admitted, however, the victim was badly beaten.

Police said the woman was taken to the hospital with cuts and bruises all over her body.

Neighbors said they are planning on being careful and being on the look out for the last suspect, who is still out on the streets.
