Aggravated Robbery/ Kidnapping
The Murfreesboro Police Department responded to a call of a subject knocking on doors stating he had been robbed in the 1100 block of Mahogany Trail around 5:30.a.m.this morning. Officers enroute to the call encountered another subject needing medical attention on Gold Valley Drive. Another call from a person at a nearby business reporting being robbed in the area quickly followed.
The investigation into the three calls revealed them to be one related situation. The two robbery victims had arrived at a home on Cayuga Trail for one to meet with a female. Upon their arrival the passenger went to the back door of the home and the driver remained in the truck. The passenger found no one to be available at the back door and began to return to the truck when he saw the 2 suspects appearing to rob the driver.
The victim in the truck reported the suspect in the cab of the truck told the driver to give him everything he had and to drive away while the second suspect jumped into the bed of truck.
As they began travelling a car backing from a driveway caused the vehicle to stop. The suspect exited the cab and went after the original passenger, who had followed the truck on foot in an attempt to help his friend, attacking and robbing him. The suspect in the bed of the truck was thrown from the moving vehicle and was the injured subject found on Gold Valley Drive by responding officers.
The victim located on Mahogany Trail and the suspect found on Gold Valley Drive were both transported to St. Thomas Rutherford for medical treatment. The female was taken into custody once her connection to one of the suspects (Kano) was established.
